We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with professional experience in traditional graphic arts.

BA Hons. Graphic Design & Illustration at Liverpool School of Art & Design is a diverse graphic arts and visual communication undergraduate programme. It has a tradition of delivering an interdisciplinary yet specialist curriculum. The programme is built upon a culture that encourages craft-based approaches to flourish side-by-side with the demands of emerging technology. Crossover between specialist areas is encouraged, as the course believes in a philosophy of artists and designers employing the media most suited to a particular task. An MA Graphic Design & Illustration has recently been established to build upon the success of the undergraduate programme.
