After developing your visual language in Year 1, you will be able to utilise these skills through a range of projects in Year 2. We focus on contemporary and relevant design which embraces imaginative solutions. Distinctive creative personalities are nurtured, the unconventional is encouraged. Your final year will see you develop a professional portfolio that reflects your career aspirations. Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to connect with industry, either through ‘live’ briefs, visiting speakers or work experience.
