ANALOG AND DIGITAL
Illustrations are much more than simply a visual representation of a character or a particular scene in a book. Illustration is about visual storytelling and is used in so many media: in books, magazines, brochures, comics, graphic novels, advertising campaigns, packaging for products, films and the gaming industry.
Illustrators design and create images – whether they prefer to use pencil, pen, brush, ink, paint, paper, canvas, or draw digitally, eg. with a Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop – for so many aspects of Visual Communication: storyboards for movies and commercials, layouts for advertising campaigns, concepts and character designs for computer games and films, animations for movies and websites, as well as illustrations for newspapers and magazines, comics, books and children’s books.
At the HTK - Academy of Design, we focus on the important fundamentals of illustration, introducing you to new techniques and developing existing skills, providing you with more options to get started in this area of Visual Communication.
Much like having great typographic skills or an eye for photography, being a good illustrator gives you the opportunity to combine these talents with other areas of the Visual Communcation course, such as animation, infographic design and motion design
