Course summary

Advance your professional and personal design practice and develop your skills through the questioning of design methods and theory.

Course overview

This course is intended for practitioners from a range of design disciplines wanting to advance their design practice and develop their skill base while developing a greater understanding of the theoretical knowledge underpinning design processes. In a creative and challenging interdisciplinary environment, design theories are questioned and established while individual creative solutions are explored.

Why study this course with us?

Our course looks across traditional boundaries within visual design practices, encouraging you to develop design possibilities for your individual practice while examining theoretical and professional contexts.

We will encourage you to engage with design discourses and new directions, thereby contextualising your individual practice.

Our course will initially facilitate the contextualisation of your practice, through research methods, current contexts and playful exploratory design practice. Then, you will have the opportunity to develop your understanding of project management, effective collaboration and the communication of design practice to professional audiences. Lastly, the final major project provides a chance to undertake a significant self-initiated design project.
