MA Communication Design is the study of information and interface design. This course is research driven and combines creativity, critical analysis of contemporary media, with knowledge of the latest methodologies and tools.
A focus on digital media practice and theory sets this course apart from traditional communication design courses, preparing you for an exciting career in a range of design roles. We’ll encourage you to explore systems for the making and communication of text and image while you redefine your own practice through various media formats of experimental publishing and interaction design.
Throughout this master’s at Winchester School of Art you’ll have opportunities to build your own tools through creative coding and modular design experimentation, learn how to develop effective concepts and prototypes for current and emergent platforms, take field trips to London and across Europe, and create a portfolio of high-quality design work.
Your practice will be supported by excellent facilities including an Interaction and Prototyping Laboratory (iLab), 3D printing and laser cutting as well as traditional design and print equipment. You’ll learn from academics with industry experience in graphic design, interaction design and design for broadcast media.
