Graphic Design and Typography

This course allows students to explore working practices in graphic communication and look at issues that designers (and the industry) face; as well as furthering their professional understanding, they will also be sharpening their academic knowledge and research skills. Undertaking both self-directed and industry-driven projects, students will learn to challenge preconceived thinking and develop innovative approaches to their design work; they will also develop their creative thinking around the professional, business and social contexts of graphic communication. Throughout the course, project work will be supported by collaboration and dialogue with staff, visiting professionals and fellow students.
