Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Summary... header image

The first year of this course focuses on the core areas of design principles, visual research and exploration, professional practice, and visual culture and contextual studies. The theme of year two is developmental design, which engages closely with content and the interdependencies of form and content. The visual word module sees a design focus centred on typography and the integration of typography and image. Professional practice in corporate identity further examines these formal relationships and structures in corporate visual communications through case studies and project work. Note: This is not a restricted entry course for CAO, but there is a portfolio requirement.
