87441 VC Project: Contexts of Visual Communication

Requisite(s): 87632 VC Design Studio: Text and Image 2 AND 87222 VC Project: Symbols and Systems



This subject requires students to explore how visual communication, design-led approaches and projects can engage with and impact social issues. Through a series of visual exercises, design-led explorations and secondary research, students come to understand the contexts in which visual communication practitioners work which align with their own values, and how they can effectively use creative practices and processes to impact particular social issues. These issues may include the implications of technological change, social responsibility, gender inequality and sustainability, enabling students to connect with contemporary design conversations.
