If you love to draw or play around with hand-lettering, or find that people ask you to design posters or logos for them, this camp is for you! You’ll get some real insight into what it’s like to have a career as a designer/illustrator, get a chance to immerse yourself in a whole week of creative activity, and start to build or add to your portfolio. Learn from a professional graphic designer, as well as CapU IDEA School of Design instructor Carol Aitken, meet current undergraduate design and illustration students, and practise hands-on skills that all creatives need. Just a few of the topics covered include how to keep a sketchbook and what to draw, how to incorporate important design and colour principles into your projects, the basics of good typography, and tips for presenting your ideas to clients. You’ll take home a logo that you designed yourself, and a book jacket for your portfolio.
