        A thorough grounding in graphic designYThis course started right at the beginning. It was hands on, paper and paint, not just computer. It showed me just how enjoyable graphic design can be. It was thorough and well thought out too, covering personal promotion and the business side as well. I finished the course believing that any talented, ballsy graduate could set up solo and make their mark on the world.
