Master's Programme in Visual Communication Design

Visual Communication is changing rapidly. Design thinking now includes new forms such as story-telling, experiences, and data visualization. Our programme represents an expanded trans-media discipline of communication and expression. When it comes to stories, many creatives have them: Graphic Designers, Authors, Animators, Graphic Novelists, and Children’s Book Illustrators. Be an explorer that uses visuals to create compelling original content in our concentration in Visual Narrative. Likewise, the demand for well-designed infographics is expanding. Our concentration in Information Design has applications far beyond the traditional design professions. Apply to make data-driven messages that sing.

Embodied Design Research Group

Embodied Design Research Group studies embodied design as a design agenda. Current computing systems treat human beings mostly as connected minds, quite completely disregarding our bodily engagement with the world. Embodied design embraces the human body as a central resource for action, communication, and play.
