Content

This unit will consider the broader applications of graphic design and visual communication in a multi-faceted contemporary environment. Students will be provided with a range of design problems and briefs from a variety of arenas such as typography, identity, branding and publication and will be required to choose four to complete. The choice of briefs will allow students to develop their folio with demonstrated skills in selected areas of focus. In an interdisciplinary context, students will investigate the consideration and implications of the cultural appropriation of technologies and design applications. Students will experiment and develop outcomes and solutions that include but are not limited to installation, projection, experiential, spatial, time-based and site-specific work. Students will research designers and artists who work within an interdisciplinary context on both a local and international stage, developing an alternative methodology that creates unique models of production. Students will test and apply their methodology, enabling them to produce work that engages the community, recipients and market on an innovative and interesting level.
