This programme focuses on the communication of ideas and information for print and digital media. Integrating traditional design principles with new media technology, students gain the skills and knowledge essential for a successful career in the creative industry.
Students are encouraged to express ideas through an understanding of visual perception, context and form, image making, typography, photography, and moving image and interactive digital media. Students explore a variety of different media and develop specialist skills in line with their own personal ideas and ambitions. Studio-based teaching and technical workshops are complemented by contextual and professional studies.
Practising designers contribute throughout the programme to keep students up-to-date with current design practice and technological change. The School’s Department of Communication Media for Design is a member of the Design & Art Direction College Network. Students exhibit at the New Blood and FreeRange graduate degree shows.
