Syllabus

This unit considers how principles of visual communication design can be applied within digital contexts. Students will obtain a theoretical understanding of the digital design process and learn how to utilise emerging development methodologies whilst producing highly creative and innovative digital prototypes. This process of development will allow students to understand the fundamental connection between the underlying code and the digital work a user can experience and interact with.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify and critique digital design processes and development methodologies;

2. Adapt and apply visual communication design techniques to new digital contexts; and

3. Produce creative and innovative digital prototypes to solve conceptual and real-world design problems.
