Study Visual Communication Design

Carlo JensenWhat is visual communication design in the School of Art, Architecture and Design? Visual communication design is about solving problems. Designers work with image, type and visual form to communicate diverse ideas, function and identity as they analyse, organise and present solutions to all forms of visual communication problems in society. Visual communication designers commonly work with an extensive range of applications from paper to digital media, still to animated (webpage design, motion graphics for film or television), flat to three-dimensional (packaging, display, exhibition), single piece to multi-page (print or electronic presentations).

If you are passionate about applying the design process to solve complex real-world problems, then study Visual Communication Design at the University of South Australia. Our graduates are equipped with the creative, intellectual, technical and professional methods needed to function as reflective, socially responsive practitioners in the field of visual communication design. Visual Communication Design students in the School of Art, Architecture and Design consistently achieve national and international awards through AGDA (Australian Graphic Design Association) and AGIdeas (the largest annual international design event held in Australia).
