The purpose of this qualification is to provide a foundation for a variety of design-orientated fields, in that the student gains competencies in the generic processes of various design specialisations.

Graphic Design I: Graphic design is a profession that requires talent and skill in a wide range of work domains. Graphic designers work with images, text and media. They utilize advanced technology to create visual and multimedia presentations. They interact with other professionals, clients, customers and managers. Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), advertisements, posters and product packaging.

Graphic Design II: Multimedia designers integrate audio, animation, graphics and video into presentations for CDs, DVDs, television programmes and websites. They work for advertising agencies, television stations, web development companies and other media companies that develop multimedia presentations. Multimedia presentations are often created to educate or entertain and a multimedia designer must be able to produce a cohesive look and theme to achieve these goals.
