Description

Emagister presents the Graphics Design & Desktop Publishing course that offers a challenging environment for skilled hands and creative minds. Build a satisfying and rewarding career as a graphic designer or desktop editor.


Graphic designers and desktop editors are imaginative and creative people. They must understand the shape and color and be able to use their artistic skills to draw and design. They have technical skills, especially in the use of computers and design software. Companies also look for candidates with good communication skills, ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines.


You can work in an advertising agency or in any commercial company that needs this service. You also have the option of establishing an independent career. There are many jobs in digital design companies and in internal printing companies, but the freelance sector is also growing rapidly. Employment opportunities in this industry are always increasing, specifically for jobs in the digital medium.


This course and qualification is a great way to consolidate existing knowledge through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), improve your skills in the industry and contribute to your professional development. It is also one of the most practical steps you can take to achieve a promotion or a better paid job.
