12cp; 6hpw (Autumn Session)
Requisite(s): 87443 VC Project: Typography in Context AND 87445 VC Project: 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 research-focused, redefining the designer's role within cultural, environmental and political contexts. By engaging with place-based design, issues of climate justice on Country, the Indigenous Design Charter and foregrounding Indigenous experience and scholarship, students challenge dominant anthropocentric views and develop design approaches for diverse worldviews.
