IT Training Nepal is one of the best training schools for Graphic Design Training in Nepal, partly because of the extraordinary faculty, partly because of the splendid course, and most importantly because of the amazing opportunity that it provides to get its students started out as true professionals. 

What will you learn in Graphic Design Training?

Graphic Design is an important means of visual communication, which is needed by most organizations in today's date. The Graphic Design training modules include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Freehand—all of which are industry standards in Nepal. Whether you need a brand logo, manipulate photographs, or work with large textual designs, IT Training Nepal has you covered!

IT Training Nepal’s Graphic design training is geared toward individuals seeking to develop their professional and creative skills in order to bring life to images and media through the visual representation of ideas and messages. In the digital era, graphic designing is quite a nifty skill to have. You can build beautiful presentations as a student or professional, build compelling brand images, dish out some aesthetically engaging literature, and so much more.

With this training course, learners can create visually attractive and persuasive designs for logos, posters, illustrations, banners, business cards, brochures, magazines, and other products. This program also pairs beautifully with the Digital Marketing Training that we offer.

We bring that up because, with the recent rise in demand for Digital Marketing, the demand for graphic designers has also increased. After all, it is nearly impossible to craft a successful Digital Marketing campaign without a compelling design to drive the call to action home.

How is Graphic Design course designed?

The course is designed and tutored by veteran industry professionals with one clear objective in mind—to make professional Graphic Designers out of every student who walks in. Granted, those are some grand ambitions, but IT Training Nepal has thus far lived up to those expectations, as is evident from the success stories we share. Our graphic design course is designed with the help of working professionals from the same field, who have years of industry experience. We have devised each module very carefully and thoroughly keeping both aspects of theoretical and practical concepts. In the beginning phase, students are introduced to graphic tools. They start the course by learning how to use these tools. Slowly, the course advances by introducing color concepts, typography along with design theory. After that, students start to create designs that can communicate visually. Our course incorporates lots of practical works and mini projects to evaluate the capacity of the students. Once a software is completely taught, a major project is assigned to students to measure their progress. The course is designed in such a way that after the completion of the training one can learn how to use graphic design tools to create visually stunning designs. 

Besides the primary objective established in the preceding paragraphs, here are a few more important objectives of our graphic design training program.

Training Methodology

The classical model for instruction in the Graphic Design Training program maintains a two-hour session every day. The first hour is dedicated to teaching in a lecture format, and the second hour is where the trainees will work on the computer to bring their designs to life.

The first hour of class is designed to impart the theoretical basis of crafting compelling designs, such as color palettes, typography, symmetry, and alignment. Apart from that, the lectures also include instructions about tools—how and when to use a certain tool. There are classes dedicated to learning about the workplaces, working with in layers, file types, standard practices and much else besides.

The second hour is where all the theory is put on the canvas to produce designs. Under the instructor's tutelage, the trainees perform a set pattern of exercises, which enables the students to test their learning. As the classes progress, the exercises become increasingly complex. Towards the end of the training period, the trainees are given a project work. Here, they would have to act as actual graphic designers and produce designs as if the design were for a real client.

This process is repeated for each of the four modules in the program:

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe In-design
  • Freehand

Of course, they are under supervision the whole time and can ask for help or advice whenever needed. Should the trainees be successful, they are given the opportunity to experience a real professional environment with our internship program.
