We offer A-level Graphics within the Design & Technology curriculum area.
Are you artistic, creative, obsessed with design, but also interested in the power of the image combined with the written word? If so, this course is for you, as Graphics is about the study of words and images, how they interact and how they perform a function.
Our industry-trained graphics staff will extend your design skills, broaden your understanding of visual trends, and teach you new techniques to a very high standard. You will complete a wide variety of text and image-based projects including branding, packaging, magazine and poster design, animation, illustration and typography. You will work in traditional and in computer-aided media (particularly Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign) and you will learn about the power of visual thinking to change the way we see things.
If you study with us you will use a dedicated suite of iMacs with Adobe Creative Cloud, a large format (A1) colour printer, laser cutter, vinyl cutter and sublimation printer as well as traditional media and equipment.
If you want to do a foundation course at art school you will have access to Tallis’s arts colleges co-ordinator, to support you with your portfolio and applications. Alternatively we can offer dedicated advice and support for degree applications in graphic design, illustration, animation, advertising and branding, architecture and related courses.
Outside of lessons your work will be exhibited in the annual Design & Technology showcase and on Instagram @tallisdt. You will also carry out extensive primary research including visits to galleries, exhibitions and site visits to investigate commercial graphic art and street art.
