THE GRAPHIC DESIGN PROJECT

The Graphic Design Project provides substantial and detailed courses to help you explore and develop your own creative skills and apply them in a range of work and hobby situations. Founder and author, Sancha de Burca, is a creativity educator with many years’ experience of teaching and coaching for the creative industries, particularly graphic design. Originally a writer, she has also written and developed both online and face-to-face university and other level courses. She has also worked in a range of other educational settings, from homeschool co-operatives to the education department of London’s National Gallery.

The Graphic Design Project also provides short courses in graphic design and related topics (such as fashion, garden or environmental design) for beginners, portfolio-builders and the homeschooled. Our projects can be taken independently or with tutor support. Prepare for the creative industries by exploring inspiring design and working to a professional design process. You may also like our courses because as well as teaching you how to make design objects they also allow you to explore your own favourite topics by making graphic design about them.
