Graphic Design Communication at Chelsea stimulates a passion for generating high-octane ideas whilst our emphasis on exclusive live projects nurtures a comprehensive grounding in the key principles of graphic design practice and critical awareness. This is underpinned by the student´s ability to create innovative and directional concepts with flair utilising professional digital and technical presentation skills.
Throughout SHOWING OFF, our graduate exhibition, level three students present evidence of dazzling visual practice underscored by contextual theory, which serves to delight their clients and their audience in combining creative innovation with design excellence.
