Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication Design)

University of Canberra

In this course students will explore 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. Graduates will have a thorough knowledge of typography, logotype design, layout, publication design, environmental graphics, packaging and digital design.
