The HNC in Art & Design (Graphic Design & Illustration) Part-time option at Morley College Chelsea Centre for the Creative Industries is a two year course designed to provide students with a broad ranging experience of these ever-evolving subject areas. The course is aimed at those who wish to work as professional graphic designers or Illustrators. This industry has exhibited growth over the past 5 years, especially in areas such as digital advertising, website design and digital design services. This course will help you to develop and extend your creative practice as a designer by providing you with a wide range of experiences such as working with clients, exhibiting your work, engaging with industry focused projects and competitions. You will study graphics and illustration related techniques, contextual studies, typography, packaging and printmaking during the course. You will work towards an end of year exhibition at our Chelsea centre during year one and two. You will be supported via tutorials and regular contact with the course team. There is a strong focus on the development of practical, technical skills, employment-focused transferable skills and personal independent working practices. Delivery from our academic and technical team is complemented by visiting speakers, industry input, live client briefs, engagement with national competitions and presentations. Projects provide the opportunity to follow a range of processes and help students to understand the conditions of a brief, allowing students to build up confidence and understanding of their own creative process and how it can best be developed in order to support progression into the graphic design or illustration industries.
