Course summary

Course overview:

We believe the most successful designers are cultural innovators who, through their practice, inform, persuade and entertain. Through our MA Visual Communication course, you’ll develop a confident design voice and create an outstanding portfolio of work in readiness for the contemporary professional world.

You’ll explore the mechanisms for conveying messages and meaning through a diverse range of media, you’ll be encouraged to develop new skills to strengthen and inform your design practice, and you’ll gain an understanding of the skill sets required for print, motion, and digital design.

You’ll also have the opportunity to enhance your practice in the areas needed to become a creative leader and go on to a career within the broad field of visual communication, which includes areas such as print media, user experience, motion design, web design, exhibition design and advertising, collaborating with other members of our creative community.

MA Visual Communication is designed to help you develop a voice as an author and innovator, equipping you with the skills and knowledge to identify and solve design problems within cross-disciplinary environments, including traditional and digital printmaking, moving image suites and 3D studios.

You’ll learn to approach design as an agent of change – a strategy for positively transforming behaviours in desirable and sustainable ways.

Led by Hugh Harwood and a team of experienced professional designers with connections at the highest level of industry – including Slawa Harasymowicz, Vida Vega and Jayoon Choi – you’ll learn through of a range of lectures, project briefs, workshops, written assignments, group critiques and individual tutorials.

Facilities:

Visual Communication facilities include dedicated studios with space for both personal and group working; digital media suites with Macs programmed with the latest industry design software including, Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro and Autodesk Maya. We have photography studios and processing and printing darkrooms for black and white film-based photography; printmaking studios with access to lithography, screen-printing, etching and relief printing.
