Bachelor of Digital Design (Visual Communication Design)

The Bachelor of Digital Design (Visual Communication Design) offers an exploration of how, as humans, we communicate and organise information in visually accessible ways, and develop a well-rounded understanding of the theory and practice of communication design. The course investigates both a traditional print-based design perspective and one which covers web-based applications and new technologies.

The degree has a strong focus on visual communication in the global marketplace and how to design for both business and consumer audiences across different cultural contexts.

The degree aims to produce graduates with a thorough knowledge of typography, logotype design, layout, publication design, environmental graphics, packaging and digital design.

Graduates will employ innovative use of different visual and emerging media types across print, screen and packaging and develop effective design solutions for specific audiences. Graduates will also gain fluency in the visual vocabulary and technical skills relevant to visual communication design. Graduates will also acquire image-making expertise and the ability to develop visual design artefacts using a range of analogue and digital media.
