Course content

This course has been developed in response to industry demand for creative professionals with specialist design skills.

Communication designers commonly work across a wide range of areas, offering a 360° collaborative approach to design delivery.

Communication Design helps you to think creatively about design problems and use technology to offer innovative solutions. Analytical skills, strategic and conceptual thinking are developed to achieve successfully targeted messages to the recipient. This broad-ranging discipline is concerned not only with developing aesthetics, but also creating new media channels to ensure the message reaches its target audience effectively.

As technology has become more prevalent, design has assumed more importance and professionals need to be able to offer new ideas to meet client needs. You will develop your own specialism, as well as collaborating with students on other postgraduate pathways, through rigorous analysis, experimentation and practical testing. You will benefit from the input of professional designers working within the future-thinking design industry.
