SIGNS AND GRAPHICS

Fancy doing a sign in the traditional way, using rich, glowing colours, elaborate designs and maybe some gold leaf? Learning the difference between a signwriter’s and an artist’s brush? Developing a design for a pub or restaurant in the classic victorian signwriting style with pin stripes, drop shadows, flourishes or decorative inlays?

Or perhaps your tastes run to developing graphic design skills so that you can create your own business cards, promotional leaflets, brochures etc.?

Then again how about learning to use a computer and plotting / printing machine to produce vinyl signs, digital prints, T-shirts designs, sandblasted glass decoration or vehicle graphics?

These are some of the range of skills you can learn on the Signs and Graphics course here with us at the Cork Training Centre.

  • Do you enjoy drawing or painting and are looking for a way to use your creativity profitably on either a part time or full time basis?
  • Are you a painting and decorating contractor who would like to add signwriting and graphic design skills to your knowledge base?
  • Are you already in the business producing vinyl signs but seeing opportunities in the area of hand painted signage for very little additional investment?
  • Are you a fine artist looking for a skill set to complement what your existing work?
  • Do you want to upgrade your CV and learn about starting your own business?

If any of the above describes you, or if the idea of spending 25 weeks in a workshop / studio setting learning a craft that offers a delightful mix of traditional and modern skills appeals to you, then this is the course for you.

Everybody loves skills like these, now you’ve got a chance to learn them.

All tools and materials supplied. What’s to lose?

I FOUND THE SIGNS AND GRAPHICS COURSE TO BE EXTREMELY EDUCATIONAL AND INFORMATIVE. FROM LOW SKILL TO HIGH SKILL ANYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN ART WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS COURSE. WHETHER IT BE COMPUTER GENERATED SIGNWRITING OR BASIC GRAPHIC DESIGN, TO THE EXTREMELY FINE ART OF LEARNING TO HAND PAINT TRADITIONAL SIGNS THE TUTORS ARE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND IF NEEDED DO ONE TO ONE EXPLANATIONS ON ANY PART THAT YOU MAY FIND DIFFICULT.

I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS COURSE HIGHLY ENOUGH. AFTER I FINISHED THE COURSE I ACQUIRED A PERMANENT POSITION IN EMPLOYMENT WITH A SIGN COMPANY.

I COMPLETED THE SIGNWRITING COURSE IN 2010. I HAD PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IN RETAIL SALES, BUT HAD LIMITED SIGNWRITING SKILLS. THE COURSE EQUIPPED ME WITH A WIDE SKILL SET, WITH EXCELLENT TUTORS, UP TO DATE TECHNOLOGY, MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION TO SUCCEED. I AM NOW SELF EMPLOYED AS A CHALKBOARD SIGNWRITER TO THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE TRADES IN DUBLIN LONDON AND CORK. I AM CURRENTLY PLANNING AN EXPO AT THE WORLD OF COFFEE 2016, WHERE I WILL TRAVEL TO THE U.K. TO INSTALL CHALKBOARDS ACROSS BOUTIQUE COFFEE ROASTER LOCATIONS.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Signs and Graphics course in the Cork Training Centre. I wanted a career change and having studied Graphic Design prior to this but never actually pursuing a career in this area, signwriting was definitely the right choice. I found the course to be extremely interesting and enjoyable. Anthony is an exceptional instructor who I cannot thank enough. I am now working in one of the biggest sign companies in Munster thanks to this course and I love what I do. It truly was a life changing experience".
