Graphic design is all about the way that we interact with the changing world, and as such, the art form is rapidly evolving to keep up with the ever-evolving face of the media.

Holmesglen's graphic design courses are shaped around real world creative projects to not only encourage you to try new concepts, but realise them with practical experience. You'll utilise the latest media and technology to create world-class products, keeping up to date with new gadgets and software along with the skills and creative processes required to allow you to be the best graphic designer you can be. 

Graduates of a graphic design course will walk away with the conceptual and design skills required to work wherever you want, whether it's in a studio, printing, advertising or design position. We're constantly upgrading our software and equipment to allow you to have the most up-to-date training possible. 

Reap the benefits of learning from teaching staff who work within the industry, as they have a wealth of contemporary design knowledge and networks to share with you. Industry partners the Design Institute of Australia and Australian Graphic Design Association provide support to students and graduates.

Study in purpose built graphic design studios and work with fellow designers in work placement and industry project work to develop your portfolio.
