The programme of study specialises in digital visual communication and associated design opportunities that may emerge with new media. It continues a tradition of high quality graphic design at AAS College, based on a philosophy that stresses the importance of creative thinking, alongside the need for a high standard of technical skills. Specialist briefs are designed to encourage creative ideas through experimentation, controversy and risk taking so that over the three year course, students produce work of distinct individuality and are able to tackle future digital visual communication challenges.
The course focuses on digital graphics for a variety of screen based media combining the creative use of word, type, image, sound, motion and narrative. On completion of the course, students will be equipped with a range of visual communication skills and the knowledge to work in the field of digital graphic design.
The lecturers on the Digital Graphics team are all working in the design industry and combine teaching with their own professional practice providing students with a current insight into design business. The staff offers a diverse range of specialist knowledge of graphic design, typography, web design, multimedia, interface design and television.
