The Professional Certificate in Communication Design aims to provide students with a stronger fundamental skill set in visual literacy and technical executions. With a strong foundational pillar in place, students are able to make better decisions before execution; having strong technical skills in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator makes it easier for them to achieve their desired outcome. The course also acts as an ‘introductory package’ to design, crafted even for people without a design background but want to upgrade themselves, as design fundamentals can be applied to all aspects of life.​
