About Graphic Design: Visual Design, BA (Hons) - at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

Visual communication explores the tools to convey messages and meaning through a diverse range of media.

From the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt to the complexity of contemporary app design, the power of visual communication has been harnessed by businesses, organisations and individuals for millennia.

Our BA (Hons) Graphic Design: Visual Communications course will allow you to build an understanding of the different techniques used to spread visual storytelling.

You’ll discover how to use these techniques to develop your own projects in areas such as editorial design, motion graphics, book arts, photography and visual narrative.

Using our dedicated studio spaces and independent study areas, you’ll evolve your own style and voice as a designer, undertaking live projects and collaborating on a diverse range of assignments with other members of our uniquely collaborative creative community.

Our aim at UCA is to launch you into the world of work as a fully rounded, capable graphic designer with a sound understanding of the underlying theory and history – reflected in our 80% practical, 20% theory curriculum.

Tutored by a team of experienced professional designers with connections at the highest levels of the industry, our graduates have gone on to work in a multitude of different roles – including graphic and packaging designers, art directors, picture editors, information designers and screen-based designers.

Our course enjoys strong links with respected names across the industry. We attract high-profile guest lecturers, with recent visitors including Bruno Maag (typographer), Jonathan Barnbrook (British graphic designer and typographer), Hans Reichert of Baseline magazine, and representatives from companies such as BCMH, Unicorn Press and Thomas Matthews.
