Please note this module descriptor is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
The module builds on the ideas and skills developed in level 4 and requires students to explore key areas of creative design practice. The module aims to embed a thorough understanding of the design process through the exploration and development of creative concepts in print, typography and moving image.
Students will be required to develop their creative potential and skills in different media; through print projects, exploring expressive typography, page layout, structure and composition; through the use of language and typographic detail in information design; by exploring the use of narrative in the communication of ideas through creative moving image; by creating designs which express something meaningful and worthwhile and are distinctive and memorable.
Visiting lecturers in each area will underpin the various projects.
All projects will be supported by appropriate skills development workshops, relevant to each project.
Produce a fully finished mock-up of a journal as a creative exploration of a given subject. Consider contemporary journal and magazine design; explore typographic traditions and formats and the expression of structure and narrative; investigate the context of a journal a magazine, a publication, a newspaper, a book.
Creatively explore typography and language through production of a large format poster and a small-scale information booklet and explore both contemporary and traditional print techniques.
Use a range of narrative and story conventions and production techniques to explore the potential of digital moving image and produce a 20 to 30 second film.
In addition to these major projects there will be a variety of shorter projects to reinforce ideas and skills across all media.
