Students will be introduced to the collaborative nature of studio production whether in person/onsite, or via a virtual/remote presence, in order to be better prepared for the evolving and increasingly global digital graphic and visual communication design industry. The course allows students to integrate and apply design theory and principles learned in the MDIA 2222 Graphic Design course in a simulated design studio context. Digital software skills are developed in order to produce design artefacts and solutions. Students select and apply design processes to structured visual communication briefs that replicate the problem-based approaches adopted by designers in contemporary studios. Students gain insight into the practice, challenges, and capabilities of producing visual communication design solutions across a range of print and digital media. Students work individually and in groups, creating and then pitching graphic design solutions applicable to a variety of visual communication media.
