Graphic Design
About the course
The course focuses on the diversity of contemporary graphic and communication design practice. The emphasis is on the development of an personal approach to the discipline. We place equal emphasis on intellectual and practical knowledge, and encourage the students to engage with both traditional and contemporary media and  processes including: typography, photography, printmaking, film and video, and physical computation; and areas of application like: art direction, environmental design, exhibition design, motion graphics, editorial and self-publishing, user interfaces and user experience, and more. 

The course aims to provide a learning environment that will allow the students to build a conceptual, visual and technical ‘toolbox’ that will enable them to formulate and execute solutions to complex design problems. 

We encourage our students to set aside traditional disciplinary divisions, and to engage in an open exploration of the unprecedented range of methodologies, processes, and media that a contemporary designer can operate within. 

At the time of graduation students will have developed an individual approach to the field of graphic design, will be confident in their own intellectual and aesthetic decisions, and they will have the skills to promote themselves and their work to potential employers and clients.

What makes the programme unique

Our tutors

Staff teaching on this course, themselves graduates from leading international art and design schools, are well regarded professionals and researchers within the discipline. Their professional insights on the current developments and their experience has a direct impact on the teaching.

An international career

The course has been designed to embrace current technological and conceptual developments within the global creative industries. We offer challenging, enjoyable projects that encourage a wide range of output, and the flexible structure of the course encourages students to explore and question the boundaries of professional practice. After graduation many of our students have been employed by prestigious international studios like Saatchi & Saatchi, Lava, and Fitch, while others have gone on to establish successful independent practices that are already making their mark on the field.

Learning resources

The Learning Resources Centre at BHSAD is the perfect place to study. It offers access to a broad range of specialist books and journals, DVDs, videos, slides, and all the electronic resources including image and article databases, electronic books, and more.

Award winning work

Our students and graduates have won many awards in many prestigious international design competitions, including Yellow Pencils and Best In Show in the D&AD New Blood Awards; Student Designer of the Year and the Graphic Design award at New Designers; success in the Student Assessments if the International Society of Typographic Design, and the YCN awards.

Live projects

Collaborations and partnerships with influential local and international brands and institutions are an important part of the course. Our students have produced work for clients like Cinzano, Roland DG, the Moscow Kremlin Museum, the British Council, and Benetton.

Rethinking craft

Our printmaking workshop introduces students both to a range traditional techniques and to the ways these might contribute to contemporary making. We always encourage our students to exercise an experimental sensibility towards processes, materials, and mixed-media making. The printmaking workshop at the school supports four printmaking processes: screenprinting, relief, intaglio, and monotyping.

Think it. Make it.

The course believes that students should be able to use any processes and technologies they feel their project work may require. Within the school our students have access to animation, sound, and video editing suites; photography studios and darkrooms; ceramics and printmaking facilities; large format digital printing equipment; as well as woodwork and metalwork workshops.

Hardware & Software

All the computers in our digital design labs have access to Adobe Creative Cloud, which gives students the opportunity to learn and use key industry standard applications like InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and AfterEffects. Specialist technicians, including qualified Adobe Certified Instructors, are available to support the students in making the most of the software.
