Graphic design incorporates all the fundamental elements of artwork such as colours, shapes, light and photography.

Changing images from dark to light, using one figure from a busy illustration or looking for the right font can be both thrilling and labour intensive. It often takes hours of scanning, adjusting, sharpening, cutting and reshaping to get the right balance on a leaflet or a webpage.

Working with enthusiastic teachers, volunteers or community groups brings further enjoyment to this type of design work. Original photographs of art objects and local surroundings often provide the inspiration for leaflets, posters and newsletters.
