6cp; 6hpw (Autumn session)
Requisite(s): 87443 VC Project: Typography in Context AND 87009 VC Design Studio: Visualising Experience


This subject introduces students to emerging areas of change in visual communication design practice. Students explore the role of the visual communication designer as collaborative, participatory and socially responsible to redefine the designer's role within cultural, environmental and political contexts. By engaging with place-based design, issues of climate justice and wellbeing on Country, the Indigenous Design Charter and foregrounding Indigenous experience and scholarship, students challenge dominant anthropocentric views and develop design approaches for diverse worldviews.
