This subject gives students the opportunity to synthesise and apply the foundational principles of visual communication design through sustained projects. A series of lectures and studio tasks assist conceptual development, with an emphasis on the relationship between word and image to communicate. Weekly tasks guide students through the iterative design process: starting with research, conceptual development, roughs to comprehensive visuals, and finally, refined outcomes.
Topics covered in the lecture series include: form and materiality as communication strategies; constraints; graphic wit; series design; sequencing; and, visual metaphor. How to be an active member in critiques, and how to give and receive critique is also part of tutorial tasks.
