Details of Learning Activities
Some learning activities will include a self-directed learning approach. Self directed learning refers to organised teacher-directed learning activities that students undertake independently, either as individuals or with other students. This may include workplace research, library assignments, fieldwork and work placements
On your timetable, this competency, in conjunction with GRAP5269 (Produce and Create Graphics in response to a Brief) will be referred to as Reprographics.
Graphic designers or graphic artists plan, analyse, and create visual solutions to communication problems. They decide the most effective way of getting a message across in print, electronic, and film media using a variety of methods. Graphic designers develop the overall layout and production design of magazines, newspapers, journals, corporate reports, and other publications.
They also produce promotional displays, packaging, and marketing brochures for products and services, design distinctive logos for products and businesses, and develop signs and signage systems for business and government.
The application of this unit in the workplace sees an individual designer responding to a brief to produce concepts using a range of advanced techniques and media. The designer would use a wide range of tools, equipment and media and the concepts developed would convey strong conceptual and theoretical development. This work would usually be carried out under limited supervision.
