tom bagnall This course has been an amazing experience. I’ve really enjoyed creating work for all of the different projects. My favorite project was the Retro poster project because of the varying art styles I got to research and recreate. In the past two years I have learnt a lot about contemporary design particularly in branding, advertising, and layout design. I am looking forward to continuing my graphic design studies on the HND at Canterbury College.

sam bridgeman When I first started this course, I had barely any knowledge of Graphic Design, since I have started I have learned to use Mac programs such as illustrator, photoshop and indesign so now i’m comfortable with working on them, and using tools within the program that I had no previous experience of. This course has also helped broaden my drawing skills. This is something that when I joined the course I was not very good at but since have improved massively. Finally, my ability to be creative has improved also. Now I feel that I am comfortable with coming up with an idea and developing it until I am satisfied with the outcome. Destination: Employment

rebecca burt I have had the best time on this course in the past 2 years. It has been really enjoyable and I have learnt a lot about overall design. I have gained varied skills in all areas of design which I will take forward with me in progression towards the next stage of my career.

It’s also been really pleasurable getting to know everyone in the class and some have become very good friends. Destination: HND Canterbury College

billie crittenden This course has been a great experience for me; I have met some great people who I’d really like to still keep in contact with. My favorite project has to be Narrative. This is because it was more self directed and we could re-create 3 different illustrations of a story. I also have a very wild imagination and in the future I wish to design children’s books. Throughout this course I have learned so much about design in contemporary society, like corporate branding, advertising and even layout design. I’m extremely excited and keen to start the HND to progress onto the next level of my education. I hope to improve my skills as a graphic designer even further.

vicky crouch To me, this Graphics course has been the quickest two years of my life. But two years in which I have gained and experienced so much. The tutors have been priceless in getting me to the level in which I am today. I have learnt a huge amount about all different medias from old style press to new digital technologies. I have also been lucky enough to participate in a number of live projects and competitions. Although the work has been thoroughly enjoyable, it’s been the people I have worked alongside that have really made my time at Canterbury as memorable as it is. I will miss it so much!

The grid system is an aid, not a guarantee. It permits a number of possible uses and each designer can look for a solution appropriate to their personal style. But one must learn how to use the grid; it is an art that requires practice. -Joesf Muller Brockman
