The work of the Design – Visual Communication graduate is all about breathing life into images, text, and concepts, turning them on their head, and communicating them in a fresh way to a wide audience. This four-year program will suit you if you wish to become a graphic designer, illustrator, typographer, or digital media designer. Through examining how image and text work together, you’ll learn how to design and visually communicate through print and digital media. The program is mainly based in a studio where you’ll work on a wide variety of projects that explore typography, image-making (illustration and photography), and digital media. Supporting the practice-based studio work, the critical theory will introduce you to design practice and key issues in the history and theory of design. Visual Exploration & Design Process, What is Design?, Drawing, Design Applications, Design, and Contemporary Society, Design for Print Media, Design for Digital Media, Image-Making, Design & Career Management, Modernism in Design, and Visual Communication. You can also take a number of optional modules from Fine Art and Interior & Furniture Design.
