Graphic & Digital Design can be seen by, and influence, a global audience. A career in Graphic & Digital Design is perfect for those who wish to harness the power of visual media.

Graphic designers produce visual solutions to the communication needs of clients, using a mix of creative skills and commercial awareness.

Opportunities are excellent. You could move into related fields such as marketing, graphics, illustration, 3-dimensional design, art direction, visual effects for television, website design, multimedia or animation for example.
