Graphic Design Course - Dublin

At BFEI located at Blackrock village, Co.Dublin we offer a one year QQI Level 5 course in Graphic Design.

Are you a visual thinker?  Do you love graphics in magazines or on the web?  Are you constantly doodling and drawing?  Do you want to do a degree in Visual Communications but have no time to prepare a portfolio before the Leaving Certificate?  Are you a mature student wanting to change careers? 

Then consider a career as a Graphic Designer.  Graphic communication is present all around us - every logo, every newspaper, and every food package.  Designers take a concept and develop it into pictures and slogans so that it is reflective and remembered by the audience.
