The purpose of the Graphic Design curriculum at The Howard School is:
- to enable our students to discover how Graphics can play a critical role in brand-building and, at the same time, showcase their own skill-sets.
- to allow our students to infuse their experience, knowledge, and application of design elements to a range of media and techniques — social media graphics, web and app, videos, banners, posters, advertisements, etc.
- to support our students’ ability to interpret and create images with the use of text, communicating a visual outcome.
- to incorporate the following: historical, contemporary, social, cultural and issues-based contexts, techniques and aesthetics. Graphics should be inspiring and evolve in response to the needs of the students’ projects.
- to confidently develop ideas, themes, subjects, and understanding of how ideas can inspire creative responses considering a target audience.
- to support our students understanding of how visual language can communicate ideas, meanings, and responses.
- To enable our students to critically reflect upon their creative journey, encouraging them to have independent views and opinions, over time.
