See the world differently...

Technology is moving fast and society is changing with it. If you’re passionate about all things visual and the impact design has on people and culture, this course is for you.

Digital Design at JMC provides you with the tools and skills you need to create innovative solutions in an ever-evolving world of interactive media. You’ll discover the true power of visual communication and storytelling, learn the processes behind creative problem solving, and explore ways to create better experiences for people in physical, digital and virtual spaces.

The Design course equips you with a deep understanding of core design principles, the design thinking process, and the technical skills required for you to apply what you’ve learned across a variety of platforms and media. You’ll be taught how to tackle projects in visual, spatial, interactive, experience and human-centred design.


We take design seriously at JMC, with studios full of the best tech in the trade. From Day One you’ll have access to light-filled design studios and highly sophisticated equipment including Adobe Creative Cloud, Wacom graphics tablets, HTC Vive VR tech, 3D printers and DSLR cameras. 


At Diploma level, explore the fundamentals of graphic design and the technical skills required to create aesthetically appealing messaging. Then delve into the design process, from research, ideation, sketching and prototyping, to implementation and watching your work come to life.

Removed from traditional classroom learning, you'll enjoy working within a design art-studio environment. Tackle creative briefs, sketch ideas on paper and create quick prototypes for testing with a realized digital outcome. Learn the processes involved with creating mobile apps and compelling user experiences, and utilize VR and wearable tech to help you make it.
