Illustration - Cardiff Metropolitan University

Illustration always has a purpose, making sense of complex ideas. As illustrators, you will work to enable understanding of the everyday; enriching literature and poetry and responding to social issues from science, medicine, politics and economics. You will be asked to explore and experiment with materials, technical skills and challenging subject matter, developing visual languages, which communicate in a visceral way. You will define your purpose from your interests and strengths, and by being exposed to ideas and subject matters you are not ordinarily drawn to. You will test how images ‘work’, in a variety of environments and scenarios – alongside and integrated with animation, film, printed and digital media. Illustration is constantly extending its reach, and whether it’s working with clients and collaborators or authoring and directing your own projects, you will graduate with a multitude of transferable skills. In an industry that’s constantly growing, you will be asked to consider the power of images in a visually saturated world and to shape your own practice enabling your work to speak to audiences in a way that’s helpful, humble and inclusive.
