Graphic Design and Illustration
“There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”
Glasgow Clyde College offers a range of Graphic Design courses from NQ right through to BA(hons). Our courses prepare you for an exciting and creative career within the field of graphic design.
We strive to create a supportive and innovative learning environment, where students can feel confident that they are being taught the relevant industry skills that will ensure the best chance of employment.
Our course structure and modules are well structured, appropriate, and inspiring.
The teaching staff are graphic design professionals with a wealth of industry experience in different aspects of this creative field.
Our students get the best jobs in the industry as their portfolios are a cut above the competition.
On the eighth floor where we teach the NQ and HND Graphics courses we have dedicated computer studios that are kitted out with Macs running the latest industry standard software Adobe CC. In this digital environment you will learn InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
We also have plenty of studio space allowing you the best of both worlds — giving you a place to sketch, paint and get creative.
The BA and BA(hons) students have their own dedicated purpose built studio within the skills centre offering a spacious and creative environment to work in.
