Bachelor of Visual Communication Design

Visual communication allows you to examine the wide-ranging aspects of the visual design process and contemporary communication. We place a strong emphasis on exclusive and bespoke live projects in collaboration with industry.

The work you will produce will reflect your passion for high quality ideas and developing digital and technical skills, preparing you for industry. You will work on multiple creative briefs, learning how to manage a diverse workload with varied outcomes. Through out this program of study you will develop a sound understanding of the link between technology and the user, between the creativity and the professional sector, and between theory and practice.

We encourage a broad and diverse approach to the design thinking and design practice, which will help you to shape engaging and imaginative design solutions through materials, media, technologies, and people. Visual design is a means of communication which permeates across culture, society, commerce, and science. We encourage you to respond to this challenge by teaching you how to organize and use design thinking in highly individual ways.

Lecturers will help you initiate frameworks for projects within which theoretical research and design practice are purposefully questioned and explored in relation to a theme, problem or proposition. You will learn how to develop your own rigorous design process, which will provide you with the means to employ critical thinking, shape materials and forms, generate and communicate content, develop prototype and engage with audience testing.

To ensured students to prepare for emerging opportunities and new applications of visual communication design, several initiatives are organized to support collaboration with external experts, and to introduce you to specialist networks and cultural organizations. Students go onto work at senior position in design agencies and advertising and an increasing number of graduates have found their own studios. This focus of this program of study is on critical practice, supporting students to be forward thinking about their application either on to professional practice or pursuing research to master level.
