Visual Communications combines skills in illustration, graphic design, typography and digital design to create images that persuade or inform. From the start, the course focuses on hand drawn imagery to develop a feel for the shapes and styles that connect with audiences.

Practical experiences to develop your skills

We’ll help build your visual awareness and understanding of the world around you. As well as plenty of theory and debate, you’ll have the chance to work on live briefs with other students and find work placements in creative businesses.

Visual Communications underlines the importance of good ideas. You’ll leave with all the practical skills you need to work in a vibrant and exciting industry. Our graduates work as freelancers, in small design companies, and with larger firms, both locally and internationally.
