Graphic Design and Typography II

15 credits

The course provides in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge in graphic design and typography. For example, the student will learn to work with and construct grid systems, explore meta communication in typography, as well as in-depth knowledge in composition and color theory. The student is allowed to explore and work independently with several exercises and projects. The student should also contextualize and critically reflect on their design process and results. The course thus contains not only practical assignments in graphic design, but also written reflections and artist statements.

Distance – study where you are

Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.

Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.

The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
