This unit will focus on a global perspective to visual communication design. Students will be introduced to more conceptual considerations of graphic design by exploring design in this broader context. Discussions will include the impact of stakeholders and the recipient in relation to the communication process, as well as the social and ethical responsibilities of designers to understand the impact of their design solutions. Students will be expected to conduct independent research to create individualistic design solutions for a cultural organization in a country or culture other than their own. Students will be required to position their submissions with a detailed understanding of the cultural significance of their work, supported by detailed research to defend their design decisions.
