Welcome to TICE Graphic Design

Graphic Design is an incredibly fast moving, exciting and highly creative industry to work in. Look all around you, graphic design is everywhere from packaging to logos, signage to the website you last looked at. The graphic design industry is very diverse and has never been in more demand as big brands like Sony through to Bob’s fish shop all need a creative problem solving, no matter how big or small the business, everyone needs graphic design on so many levels. Graphic designers are simply ‘creative problem solvers’, helping the world of business to grow and thrive, stand out from either competitors or to create an awareness campaign for the launch of a new product.
At TICE graphics, we don’t just aim to give you an understanding of the graphic design industry but experience it first-hand. You will be shown the creative process and how to generate those big ideas, layouts, the meaning of colour and how powerful the correct font style can be. Encouraging young people to express their creativity will give a clear understanding to what the graphic design industry can truly offer.

Throughout the experience, I developed more independence as well as a wider understanding of how businesses function. It gave a good perspective on the job opportunities in my area and it has helped me with my planning for the future.

I did the graphic design workshop. I really enjoyed it . I loved how creative it was and the independence involved . I learned how to create a brand and make a logo that went well with the concept. I also learned how important colour was in the world of design. I also learned how easy it is to turn something simple into something amazing, i really enjoyed this day and gained a lot of knowledge about the industry and the education paths into the world of graphic design.
