Digital Design is an exciting and challenging course aimed at students interested in the computer and digital side of the creative industries, and is designed as a pathway into the fields of graphic design, digital photography, games design, animation, illustration and product design.

You will complete a variety of projects exploring; design, branding, advertising, 3D modelling, concept art, technical drawing, typography, lens and narrative based image making.

While the course is centred on digital processes, traditional hands-on techniques such as printmaking, traditional photography processes and model making will feature, while drawing and use of mixed media will be used as a primary method to communicate initial ideas, concepts and design intentions.

You will develop as an independent practitioner focusing on areas of skills and interest by building a digital sketchbook and portfolio of work for further progression into Digital Design and Photography Level 3 and ultimately higher education or employment. This course supports GCSE English and maths resits where required.

Assessment

The course consists of 9 units which are assessed on the work you generate throughout the year in set projects.
