BA (Hons) Graphic Communication
The year in review
Words by Martin Schooley, Course Leader
The Graphic Communication graduates are multidisciplined designers and leave NUA with strong portfolios that will enable them to seek employment in design studios, working in areas such as branding and digital, motion and cross-platform advertising.
The course has strong links with design agencies and works closely with the likes of 48.1, Conran Design, the Team and Dragon Rouge to ensure that the course is aligned with industry expectations.
We are proud to announce that Andrew Florence was the winner of the Dragon Rouge Firestarter competition – a national design competition which has secured him a paid internship later this year.
Covid–19 has certainly had an impact on the final few months of study, however the Class of 2020 have produced some astonishing work, they are positive and resilient, and are looking for opportunities to begin their careers in the design industry – we wish them the best of luck.
All the graphics courses at NUA benefit from very close relationships with industry in the form of talks and agency-led projects, collaborations and competitions.
This year we have had the pleasure in welcoming the following guests from industry: Studio Sutherl&, Dutchscot, Together Design, D&AD, Dragon Rouge, Superunion, Pate on Toast, Naomi Games, Tom Ashton Booth, Chris Wormell, Marion Deuchars, Monotype, Pentagram, Elmwood, The Team, Magpie Studio, Socio Design, Mucho, Interabang Conran Design Group, and Craig Oldham.
