Graduates in graphic design can seek employment in many different creative industries. From marketing and advertising to the production of print media, through web design and UX. All large companies require a team of talented designers to communicate properly with their clients and stakeholders. You can work as a designer in any company or as a freelance.
You will learn to use Adobe Creative Cloud software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, InDesign and Premiere) and you will be able to take photographs, videos and animations at a professional level. Graphic design students are also encouraged to present their best work in design competitions, ensuring an exhibition of their work to the industry. Our students have won awards at international festivals as prestigious as the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) Student Design Awards, D&AD Awards or Young Creative Network (YCN) Awards.
The Graphic Design course at Solent University pushes you to explore a wide variety of professional techniques and develop your own visual style. Throughout the course, you will create visual products for different print and digital media and learn theories and visual culture in the context of contemporary graphic design.
Your professional development is backed by a wide variety of high-end printing and design materials, including Vandercook printers, intaglio and screen printing and engraving presses. You will also have access to photo studios and dark rooms; a fully equipped workshop for metal and wood and Apple Mac computers with the latest Adobe Creative Suite software.
The year at Solent University was a great year for me! I took advantage of it very well: I discovered that I am very interested in branding and thanks to a great teacher who inspired me a lot, I acquired a lot of knowledge in that area, so I grew my creative portfolio to focus my career on branding. I am very happy and very grateful to Miami Ad School for this opportunity! After only three years I learned more than I thought possible!
At Solent University you learn more about the academic part of advertising. I did the degree of Advertising and learned to pay more attention in the practical parts of advertising: presentations, data, things that help sell an idea to the client. After learning everything you learn at Miami Ad School, it is a great opportunity to apply what you have learned to more academic thinking. You will grow a lot with this experience, and it will be a good opportunity to challenge you.
Moving to Southampton and studying the Solent University program with Miami Ad School was not only beneficial for my academic career, but also a life-changing experience. I met many people from different cultures and countries, some of whom I know will be my friends for life. The city is rich in history and there are always things to do. If you are looking for an international experience for your studies, this is the best plan.
