Hone your skills the way you want to

Advertising

Students will be pushed to affirm their communicative capacity and brush up their promotional communication skills to tackle the advertising world with design for advertising - mastering the effective deployment of layout, typography, image and concept.

Art Direction

Students learn visual style and imaging for magazines, product packaging, and audio-visual productions. They will be trained to harness and integrate the various elements within a design to produce a certain look and feel for the resulting work so that it contains the required expressions and conveys the appropriate messages.

Audio-Visual

This will aid students in learning about the essentials of design for temporal media (time-based media) that incorporates audio-visuality. Moving images present a different set of challenges for the visual communication designer, with film and television content forming the realm of visual design practice.

Branding, Identity and Packaging

Students learn the know-how of branding a product or service for effective marketing while understanding the processes and meaning making systems of ubiquitous visual signs, logos, logo-types. They also learn effective packaging design for products that are consistent with brand identities.

Information Design

Students practice the detailed planning and visual interpretation of specific information that is to be provided to a particular audience, and in meeting those objectives, the information is presented in a way that fosters efficient and effective understanding, for further action.

Motion Graphics

Students are familiarised with the basic principles of animation / motion graphics and understand the core components and functions of standard motion graphic tools. They will also learn to effectively animate and deploy type in the context of motion.

Spatial Design

The students learn about the design of built environments, incorporating aspects of interior design, architecture, performance, art and visual tools and techniques. Central to this is the relationship between people and built environments, where one has to design ways to improve those environments. Environmental graphics is integral to this activity as well.

Typography

Students will have a good understanding of typographic design and how type is used to communicate, for typography is one of the most influential elements that establishes the character and emotional attributes of a design. The ability to classify typefaces is essential to design and effective communication, for different fonts have different characteristics and personalities.

Web and Interaction Design

The students will be initiated into the domain of user centered design by learning to create engaging web interfaces aiming to play out desired user experiences. The principles of visual interface design go a long way to establish meaningful communication via interactive media, by engaging with cyclical and collaborative processes between people and technology.

Print

Students gain an understanding of the essentials of the various methods (such as lithography, screen-printing, letterpress, hot-metal, linocut) that enable text and images to be printed on to a wide range of substrates from paper and board, to ceramics and textiles.
