Graphic design is integral to a range of forms of visual communication. This course introduces students to key principles and practices of graphic design in both print and digital formats. It contextualises these within the broader field of visual communication and takes a problem-based learning approach to their application. The course covers a range of fundamental concepts in graphic design to provide opportunities to investigate graphic design problems and to apply and reflect on solutions to these. It can be taken as a stand-alone elective or as preparation for the project-based courses in the Visual Design major.
