Undertake practical projects across digital and print media, and learn about design principles and how to respond to user needs. Current projects include: brand campaigns, books and magazines, music packaging, newspapers, pictograms, wayfinding and sign systems, and websites and mobile apps. You will enjoy small group teaching, accessible tutors, dedicated 24-hour studio spaces, and a hands-on approach to design history through our renowned graphic design collections. You will learn how to communicate your design ideas clearly and persuasively through project reports and presentations. Essays and a final year dissertation will develop your research skills and your ability to bring your ideas together. You can widen your profile by studying abroad in your second year at one of our partner institutions in Germany, Canada or Australia, where the design courses are taught in English. You will also have opportunities to collaborate with staff on research projects with real world impact.
