Course Description

Graphic Design embraces a number of artistic and professional disciplines in the field of visual communication and presentation, including the use of typography and photographic imagery.

It transcends language barriers by means of symbols. Various methods are used to create and combine symbols, images and/or words to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. Common uses of graphic design include magazines, advertisements, product packaging and web design.

At SEGi, we grow and teach you the success rules in expressing ideas, allowing your work to tell your stories. Our mission is to enable excellence in art and design education, adapting and keeping up with international developments.
