In this session, you will be introduced to the difference between vector and raster graphics and why this skill is highly demanded from employers. The content of this session will include the theory and practical learning of digital tools that are mainly used. To develop their skills with these digital tools, it will be achieved through an activity where they will trace over a raster graphic image. As a result, they will be able to successfully navigate and familiarise themselves with the user interface of the program. Furthermore, learners will be able to confidently use these skills in practice and learn how to produce a 'Monogram' style logo brand for themselves.

We are also delighted to announce that if you attend 7 hours worth of Digital Skills sessions (each session lasting 1 hour) you will obtain a HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Record) accreditation. *To find out more please visit: Your HEAR Higher Education Achievement Report - Graduation - University of Liverpool. https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/graduation/official-documentation/sharing-your-hear/
