Course description

This course gives you the chance to explore and develop. For example, you can design a brand new font in Illustrator, make it in wood on the latest laser-cutter, print it on a 150-year old handâ??operated press then scan it and manipulate it in Photoshop. If you choose this course you may benefit from: Placement/professional experience (subject to application) as part of the course during the second year; Professional portfolio reviews (usually in the third year); Good on-going relationships with many companies who often work with our students providing employment, placements or professional review and guidance, for example Airbus France, Betahaus in Barcelona, Spain and in Berlin, Germany, Blind Mice Design, FILTAweb, Librios, Migraphics, Totem Learning Ltd and Watermill; Staff with expertise in a range of disciplines from editorial and book design to web-based design and typography. Staff will discuss their work with you so you can connect what they do with what you learn. All staff are active researchers and practitioners, and ensure that this feeds into their teaching; Access to dedicated design studios, the best software packages for page layout, image manipulation and multimedia design, a metal type workshop, printmaking workroom, screen printing studio, photographic resources and a digital print bureau; Opportunity of exchange programmes overseas; Coursework including national and international competitions. In 2013 students from Graphic Design at Coventry University won first prize for the Puffin Penguin book cover design competition, a D&AD yellow pencil and the Sky Arts sting and in 2014 were runners-up in the Puffin/Penguin prize and highly placed in the Sky Arts sting competition.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The UK has a proud reputation as a centre of design excellence, and last year, design was behind only nursing in the number of graduates from UK universities with nearly 13,700. Not all areas of design have been affected equally by the recession, so bear this in mind when you look at the stats. At the moment, things are looking a little better for fashion and textile designers and not as good for interior or multimedia designers – but that may change by the time you graduate. In general, design graduates are more likely than most to start their career in London. This also varies by subject – fashion designers often find jobs in the North West. Some employers in the field, particularly in London, are a little prone to asking graduates to work for free, so while it’s not the norm – one in nine design graduates from 2012 starting design jobs in London were working unpaid – it does go on.
