What if you could combine your love of graphic image making ​and film together to create A DREAM JOB?

The good news is you can, as a graphic artist. The graphic artist is responsible for designing all the graphics that feature in a film or television production, ranging from a billboard hoarding to a box of matches and everything in between!

In Your First Graphic Design For Film Workshop I will introduce you to the research methods, practical skills and design principles you need to start working as a graphic designer for film and tv.

There has never been a better time to get into graphic design for film & tv.

And wouldn't it be great to design stuff that's a bit more 'HANDS ON'?

Digital is great. Quick, versatile and efficient. But do you feel sometimes it would be great to have a bit more of a physical connection to your design work?



Designing graphics for film gives you endless opportunities to replicate practical production methods that were commonly used before the job of 'graphic designer' even existed.

Your First Graphic Design For Film Workshop will take you through ​some of these practical techniques.

'AN INTRODUCTION TO
GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR FILM
'

Your First Graphic Design For Film Workshop is a unique opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge you need to take your design aspirations to the next level.
I will introduce you to the theory, research and practical production methods you need to start designing and creating your first optimal portfolio of graphic props so that you can find work in a film or television art department, or simple apply a different kind of aesthetic to your design work.

Take a moment to imagine YOUR CREATIVE CAREER containing time travel, fictional worlds and
TELLING STORIES

Yes, really! The graphic artist's job on any film or tv production is to imagine and create everything ephemeral associated with particular time periods, imaginary scenes and unique stories.

A graphic artist's work may only be seen on screen for a few seconds, or it may feature heavily throughout the the story moving the plot forward. Either way, working as a graphic designer for film allows you to:

Create Graphic Art with purpose
When you create graphic art for film you are contributing to a much bigger creative process that brings so many people and their talents together. Graphic props are integral for creating authenticity in a scene or story.

Create a strong emotional connection with your work
There is nothing like watching a great character in a great story to make you feel emotionally connected. Graphic designers for film are sometimes required to create 'hero props' which are specifically designed for actors to use. Imagine a character on the big screen interacting with your design work!

Combine your passion of cinema and visual design to craft work that is all about the story
If you are anything like me then you are obsessed with films and in particular, a good story. Graphic design for film allows you to tell great stories on so many levels, from designing props that are integral to the plot, to designing props that dress a scene and have their own history and backstory.

Discover new and exciting ways to combine typography, drawing and the physical making process
You get to be designer, drawer, printer and crafts person all rolled in to one, bringing together digital and physical design processes that replicate key period production methods.
