Introduction to Illustration
We kick start the first year exploring fundamental illustration principles - creative problem solving and visual communication - alongside the manipulation of a range of image-based media, materials and techniques.
At its heart, Illustration is storytelling. Illustrators frequently tell stories and convey complex messages or concepts through their image making.
Image & Text
Our students explore the relationship between images and text, and are introduced to the design principles of layout and composition, as well as hand rendering techniques associated with typographic design, with the intention of integrating both image and text within a design context.
Building visual language
Throughout the first year, students experiment and evaluate a range of creative communication techniques, applying and manipulating a range of image-based media, materials and techniques.

Students explore problem solving and creative play with a range of creative print-making processes. Workshops consist of a series of experimental print techniques, which are designed to develop an understanding and awareness of the processes used.
