Course Information

The course combines an innovative, experimental and critical approach to the practice of Illustration. Supporting the full scope of contemporary illustration practice, from craft based techniques and drawing through to digital and sequential moving image based work, the course explores how the explosion of possibilities that digital media have created for producing, distributing and publishing graphic work, are changing the role of the designer and design in society through a critical engagement with different forms of contemporary design practice and cultural history.

Taught in a cluster of Communication Design courses including Animation and Graphic Design, it combines narrative and documentary drawing with a reflective and outward looking emphasis on how storytelling affects change, through creative problem solving, collaboration and entrepreneurship.
