Staff Profile

Don Parker

“From a typeface to designing a city, what we create in graphic design changes people’s lives. The 1977 ‘I Love New York’ campaign by Milton Glaser shaped a different New York in people’s minds. Glaser didn’t just design something, he changed people’s perceptions. That’s one example of what we can do with the power of graphic design and brand. That’s what inspires me. My teaching is about being approachable; a meeting of two minds, the student and teacher sharing the experience. My office door is always open and my students are always first on my list of priorities.”

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
