Professional practice, responding to real-world design briefs, and gaining an understanding of industry best-practice form the basis of this subject. This subject prepares students with the practical skills for their transition into the design industry. Both primary and secondary research methods are used to develop an understanding of the workplace and prepare for employment by developing a personal visual identity and a professional portfolio. Lectures and workshops orient students with skills for professional practice, and encourage a social understanding of visual communication design practice locally and globally. Students are guided through the process of interpreting a design brief, pitching a design response, presenting process work for critique, incorporating critique into a design solution, and producing highly refined design outcomes to a professional standard.
The professional experience program (PEP) is introduced as part of this subject.
