Well regarded by industry, the CIT Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design are full-time courses that offer sound instruction in visual communication and the right skills to start your career as a graphic designer. You will develop design concepts and produce designs that meet client's needs for a range of visual communication outcomes, either for print-based design work or digital media-based design. The Diploma course will develop in you a sound understanding of design theory and practice how to analyse and integrate information from a range of sources to generate original designs for a range of different projects you may undertake. As you progress to the Advanced Diploma, you will enhance your abilities and experiences at developing design concepts and working on more complex and technical design and visual projects, through working in teams, as well as showcasing your negotiation and organisational skills through the creation of effective work and production processes. Projects may include corporate branding, packaging design, publication design, web graphics, websites, 2D animations and a public exhibition of your work. Real industry experience (placements) are encouraged and supported by local industry. You can choose to specialise in either print design or digital media design, or both through further study. The program includes up to 120 hours of industry placement in the 4th semester. The placement is unpaid, though coordinated by CIT staff.
