This taster day will introduce you to this exciting and dynamic Foundation Degree in Graphic Design & eMedia at Leicester College.*

Our culture relies on communication in its varies forms. Graphic designers are integral to the process of the delivery of mass communication methods from a printed product, corporate identities, moving imagery and the ever growing online forms of a media rich content.

“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
(Milton Glaser)

“Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent”
(Joe Sparano)

“Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future”
(Robert L. Peters)

The Foundation Degree is a post A level, two-year, full-time Course. Foundation Degrees have an emphasis on work related learning. This can include work experience, employment, work related projects. The taster day like much of the course itself will be “hands on”. The day will include a creation of a front cover Epublication and design a logo in an hour you will have an opportunity to talk to staff and current students.
You will also have an opportunity to view past and current student work.
