Overview

“Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works”. – Steve Jobs

This is a programme for those with the creative eye. The discipline of Graphic Design & Digital Design continues to grow rapidly in new and fascinating ways. Designers become problem solvers, conceptual thinkers, visual communicators and above all, experienced professionals.

The programme offers you a variety of interrelated areas of study in typography and graphic design, packaging, branding and advertising, fine arts and visual communication information and interaction design, photography, data visualisation and moving image.

You will benefit from the state of the art teaching, studio and workshop spaces, as well as our brand new library and IT facilities. The programme team includes not only professional practitioners who provide a vital link between education and industry, but also highly qualified academics with international reputation in design theory and practice.
