Graphic Design Work Experience

VWEX header video

Experience overview

Graphic design is everywhere and you likely rely on it a lot without even realising it, from easy-to-read road signs to finding the nearest toilet in a hurry, we're going to explain some of the key concepts of graphic design. We're also going to take a look at some of the biggest industries that use graphic design, like gaming!

What’s included?

You'll hear from a whole load of designers and creatives - they'll explain how they got into the industry and, if you're lucky, they might even share some top tips. You'll complete activities and quizes, and we'll even give you a hand starting your own graphic design portfolio.

Thank you for taking the time to create this programme. The volunteers on the live sessions were all really nice and down to earth which was really good to hear proper experiences in this industry, without sugar coating or hiding anything. To the people who made this project brief and stuff for us: I really enjoyed it and I thought it was the perfect topic and it's nice to bring more awareness and knowledge of this subject to more people! Also all the videos were really nice on this programme. Very full of life and engaging!

Thank you for providing opportunity for young people like me who had no previous exposure to the industry/ This programme has some great elements that differentiates itself with other work experience providers. The programmeg particularly focuses on ourselves: our confidence, our skills and what we want to do in the future rather than just the work opportunities available and how to get there. I've really enjoyed this programme and hope there would be more opportunities into this specific field

Thank you very much for this experience. This sector sounds fascinating and I will definitely explore more. During and after lockdown, my opportunities for work experience were completely erased. But thank to this wonderful virtual work experience, I am able to gather crucial experience to write down on my CV and personal statement. Thank you once again!
