Graphic Design Courses

Graphic Design Institutes in India have been training candidates for a long time but most of them are very narrowly focused on imparting software application skills. These Graphic Design Institutes in India are unable to impart the sound theoretical and conceptual understanding that's required to be a professional graphic designer. MIT ID is one such Graphic Design Institutes in India which understands the importance of a sound conceptual knowledge and also of the necessary skills required to be a professional graphic designer.

Graphic Design is an important aspect of Communication Design. The learners of Graphic Design discipline find that the courses of study are centered on various topics like typography and type design, illustration and photography, packaging and print design, signage design and corporate identity systems. The application of Information Technology would take learners in fields of computer graphics, multimedia and web design. Learners use software like Sound forge, Adobe premiere, Adobe After Effects and Combustion for the Graphic Design projects.

Graphic Design courses in India are suitable for candidates who are inherently good at creativity and visual communication. However, Graphic design courses at MIT ID equip the learners with the required knowledge and skills to be professional Graphic designer.

Scope

Graphic design is a creative, strategic, managerial, and technical activity. It essentially involves the production of visual solutions to communication problems. A Graphic Design learner is honed to become a 'designer' with a disciplinary focus who integrates the idioms and approaches of other disciplines such as science, medicine, engineering and information technology resulting in a cross-disciplinary input to achieve a collaborative, multi dimensional and hybrid visual competence.
A Graphic Design learner is mentored to design for identity design; typography; editorial and publication design; information design; illustration; photography; packaging; design for social impact; broadcast graphics and film titles, , web and game interface design; interaction, environmental and exhibition graphics; merchandise; signage and pictogram systems; data visualization; and any other activity within print, online and offline shaping of visual form.
Designers are moving away from tangible object-orientation and toward experiential or service-oriented design solutions and are involved in generating services, information visualization and visual experiences. Learners are trained to develop intellectual sensibility and skill, nurtured through educational training and professional experience, to create designs or images for reproduction via multiple media creating meaning for a community of diverse users. By applying critical thinking, creativity, experimentation and evaluation; substantially supported by an inclusive approach that emphasizes difference, respects human, environmental and cultural diversity; they strive to create communication systems and experiences for the betterment of humanity and the environment. They simultaneously master technologies and production techniques in order to provide in holistic deliverables.
