Student Graphic Design Work

This gallery shows a small sample of student work from the Graphic Design course at BCFE. While the majority of students have little or no experience with graphic design software at the start on the course, within weeks they are producing impressive design material. The quality of student work by the end of second year allows them to easily move into graphic design employment, or progress to advanced entry of a level eight honours degree programme. For a general overview of the HND in Graphic Design course at BCFE go to the Home Page, this page covers the course in much greater detail.

For more information on the entry requirements for the HND in Graphic Design at BCFE go to the Application Page.

These are some examples of students vector poster designs. Using Illustrator students answer a design brief by mastering complex tools within the software to produce an innovative visual response. As demonstrated in this gallery the graphic design course at BCFE helps students to develop their own illustrative style, which demonstrates a real mastery of a whole range of graphic design software.

Below are some examples of Photoshop composites created by students on the HND in Graphic Design at BCFE. Using Photoshop students create photo composite images in response to a design brief. These composites require strong concept development coupled with the sophisticated application of Photoshop tools and techniques.

Our packaging design module brings together a range of different design skills from the various course modules. Skills include vector illustration, typography, photo compositing and craft, as well as acquired packaging design know how. Below are some examples of packaging designs created by our students.

Illustration plays a huge part in the graphic design programme at BCFE and one of the illustrative techniques covered on the course is digital painting. Below are some examples of digital paintings by students.
