About the course
Creative? But not sure what to study? Start here.
This course is available online as full-time, or part-time study, and has been especially designed to give you a taste of every digital design discipline to see where your passions lie. Over 20 weeks, you’ll try graphic design, film-making, animation and interactive design. You’ll be introduced to a range of industry software and learn photography, video creation and editing, web development, character development and even a bit of coding— it’s about finding your place in the creative world through experimentation and practical learning.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills you need to work out which creative path is right for you. Better yet, you’ll have developed a mini-portfolio with all the design assets you’ve created along the way. This is the perfect tool for applying for one of our Level 5 diplomas.
There are no exams for this course. And you’ll graduate with the New Zealand Certificate in Digital Media and Design (Level 4).
What you’ll learn
Learn what makes a design element successful by getting a handle on the principles of design. Using InDesign and Photoshop, create design assets and find out what makes certain designs appeal to certain people by learning more about target audiences.
What makes a film Oscar-worthy? In this module, you’ll learn about the history of films and the filmmakers behind them. You’ll find out more about the production planning process and how filmmakers tell incredible stories through the lens of a camera.
Using Illustrator and other digital software, try your hand at a range of animation techniques, including claymation, stop-motion, and flip book animation. You’ll also learn how to tell incredible stories through the animated character you’ve designed.
This module introduces you to the basics of both UX and UI (User Experience and User Interface) design. You’ll touch on the principles of code, and work on interactive projects such as creating simple websites and learning about what makes a game truly playable.
