Course Overview

During this course you will be producing printed vinyl murals and floor graphics which are literally larger than life.

This project based program will engross you in a client brief with real world outcomes that will challenge you with application, design, and produce a tactile finished installation.

Learn how to design with Adobe illustrator in stage one of the program and in stage two you will learn about the technology behind the products, the production process, and then actually how to install the final work.

Experienced teachers will help you build a bridge between conception to application, enabling you to approach a potential employer with experience and knowledge in large format digital printing.

While this nationally recognised qualification can provide entry level employment in the graphics industry, many students go on to study higher level arts courses before gaining employment.
