Diploma of Graphic Design
Torrens University Australia - Fortitude Valley

Course outline

The Diploma of Graphic Design explores the theory, practice and human connection of graphic design. Throughout the course, you’ll challenge the conventions of current graphic design ideas and deliver engaging, appropriate and original solutions for everything from point-of-sale material to books and billboards.

You’ll learn about design history and principles, ideas generation, brand identity, typography, design research and user experience. By examining logos, symbols and brands you’ll have the opportunity to design your own unique brand and workshop it with other students, so you start to see your designs through the eyes of others. You’ll also gain the skills to use industry standard graphic design software with confidence and flair.
