In this subject, students explore a range of theoretical contexts that situate visual communication design and image-making as a critical practice. Through this exploration, students gain a theoretical understanding of how visual, formal and material elements create arguments. Students also learn how to apply historical and theoretical knowledge to their own work, developing a holistic understanding of practice-based research and the relationship between making and thinking. The content is oriented towards the written components of the honours degree.
