We have a huge variety of Digital Design and Photography courses at PSAD. Our digital tutors have years of industry experience combined with fine art practice which gives our students a unique learning experience using Adobe software including Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. Adobe has been the design industry standard for creating graphics and manipulating imagery for years.

You will learn how to use the tools, palettes and menus in the various software programs to create original artwork which can be used for a range of art practice including graphic and textile design.
