Design & Visual Communication

Graphics and design students have the opportunity to gain credits by exploring ideas through design practice.  Drawing, including freehand and technical drawing and the use of computer graphics packages are essential tools to depict and clarify students' ideas and proposed solutions.

Through design-based activities students develop reasoning and decision making skills, explore what it means to be a designer, understanding social and human needs, recognise their own and others' values, investigate historical perspectives, examine issues of sustainability, use all kinds of new technologies to communicate their ideas effectively and above all, enjoy learning.
