Graphic takes students through a series of short focused projects. The tasks set include marketing campaigns for various products including logo and catch phrase, advertising poster/ banner for both print and internet. Another focus for year 9 is packaging going through design, modelling and production. Students are able to build upon IT knowledge gained through the school as well as trying new software to support their designing.
Graphics is supported through project sharing with Textiles due to timetable constraints.
This includes learning to use Photoshop and packaging design and make for the textiles product.
Graphics is linked with electronics to produce a working badge that lights up when dark. Students use graphics to produce designs for the actual badge as a promotional item for a given event, and using a printed circuit board solder on the necessary components. Being bright students they are taken through the theory side of electronics using Croc-Tech software to experiment, linking in nicely with their science curriculum.
