Unit 03 Develop ideas and graphic solutions (F/504/0811)

In this unit, learners will use the sources they’ve investigated to inform their ideas in response to a given design brief. Learners will use visual techniques to propose a range of alternative graphic ideas and solutions in response to feedback and constraints or external factors affecting the design development.

Learners will then select one idea and will work independently modifying this idea as their work progresses.

Unit 04 Plan, produce and present final graphic design work (J/504/0812)
