Course Overview

This dynamic course is both theoretically rich and production-orientated. You’ll be hands on right from the start, working on creative projects that build your skills and engage your imagination. Along the way, you’ll develop those all-important tools for the designer – project management, interpersonal communication, understanding briefs, working to timelines and budget, and drilling down to find out what your clients and users really need. Complementing the expertise of your teachers – all leaders in their fields – guest lecturers will bring you live case studies, so you gain a deep understanding of how your industry operates and thrives. Collaboratively, you’ll experiment with an exciting range of innovative processes, leading to original and effective design solutions. On your own, you’ll devise a multi-part interdisciplinary project, integrating practices from across the spectrum of Media Design. This project will come with all the constraints of a real brief, so you’ll find out exactly what it’s like to work in a design studio. The finished product will be a feature of your professional portfolio, which you’ll build on throughout the course. Plus, your work will be on display in the end-of-year exhibition, where you can celebrate your achievements, showcase your skills, and perhaps impress your future employer!
Learning Outcomes:
  • Develop and implement design solutions
  • Create innovative new processes and technologies
  • Ability to adapt to different working environments
