Purchase Intermediate Design Projects

Our intermediate graphic design projects are also suitable for those beginning to learn graphic design, beginning to build a creative portfolio, or who want to develop their design, artistic and idea-getting skills. Learners can start with these as they are also explained ‘from the ground up’. The projects are aimed directly at the learner but can be undertaken with a supporter. Designed for teenagers, the projects are also suitable for adults who do not have much or any experience of design yet and for able children (with guidance). Many are also easily adaptable for group work.

These projects also include clearly explained elements of ‘design for good’ in that they also tackle increasingly important issues in design, such as sustainability and wastage, working for and with others, and thinking about simple ethics in design’s making processes and communication.

You may need basic equipment, such as pens and paper and a phone camera to undertake the projects. You do not need design software, though you can use it if you have it. You will need access to the internet to receive the project and to explore online (though some of the projects can be completed without the internet, once you have saved the project document). See the individual project panels for requirement details.
