Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication)
Queensland University of Technology - Kelvin Grove

Course outline

This course emphasises practical experience through projects and design studios, and encourages creativity within a vigorous design culture. You develop adaptable and resilient capabilities to design, think critically, effectively communicate and collaborate to realise your ideas in diverse situations.

You develop both practical and theoretical skills in multiple visual communication design specialisations including graphic design, typography, image making, information design, experience design, motion design, branding and interaction design.

The course also enables you to incorporate knowledge and skills from other study areas into the degree.

This course is covered by the QUT Offer Guarantee and Year 12 Early Offer Scheme.
