Graphic designers creatively solve visual problems to communicate messages to a variety of audiences across a range of platforms and media.
The course sets out to work cross-media and cross-context, focusing on ideas around editorial design, information design, wayfinding, exhibition design, creative coding and design for promotion. We value and nurture individualism with an emphasis on strong concept-driven work, displaying an understanding of context (over) rather than a trend-led graphic style.
