What is this module about?

It’s all about previsualisation and portfolio production. You will learn how to create professional mock-ups in Photoshop, how to use 3D graphics to previsualise branding and product design, how to utilise Dimension’s features, and how to organise and present your work with Bēhance and Adobe Portfolio.

What are the requirements for this module?

Completion of the first three General Studies modules, ending with Image Manipulation and Print Design is a must as you will need good Photoshop skills, and a good understanding of vector graphics, light and colour theory, and composition. You will need access to Adobe Creative Cloud, and a computer that can run Photoshop and Dimension.

Whom is it recommended for?

This is a niche module for graphic designers, especially those who do not want to learn serious 3D skills, but still want to be able to create their own mock-ups and previsualisations (usually warmly welcomed from the client side). On top of that, the module has very useful and practical methods of portfolio production, and the theoretical background on what and how to showcase, especially when hunting for a job, or new clients.
