Study Graphic Design – become a graphic designer!

Has it always been your dream to be creative? Would you like to work as a graphic designer, develop creative concepts, implement ideas and design them yourself?

Studying graphic design means making your own creativity visible and communicating clearly and visually.

More and more companies and service providers are focusing on convincing visual communication and positioning themselves on the market with an unmistakable corporate identity (CI) - and graphic designers play a key role in this.

Graphic designers translate specific orders into concise and easy-to-understand designs. They plan, draft and conceptualize design solutions and accompany the entire process through to the market-ready product.

In this state-approved online course, you will learn to apply basic design principles, create graphic forms, make confident color decisions and use typography skillfully. You will develop logos, brands and image campaigns, screen designs and magazine titles and implement them precisely and professionally.

After successfully completing the course, you will have everything you need to work successfully as a graphic designer.

Turn your vocation into your profession.

Note: If you do not yet have any experience with graphics software, we recommend our online training course Adobe Graphics Software. (course language: German).
