About

Students majoring in Visual Communication Design at Anderson University - Indiana learn how to design for a variety of media. However, design is not just about what you make; it’s also about how you think. From the first sketch to the final pixel, we encourage our majors to develop both skill and understanding by using critical, creative thinking to solve the challenges of visual communication.

Overview

As a Visual Communication Design major at Anderson University - Indiana, you’ll work both individually and in collaborative groups on various design projects. Through these projects, you’ll explore the vocabulary of visual language: type and texture, form and space, symbol and icon. You also will be challenged to consider important theoretical issues: the influence of propaganda, the relationship between text and image, and the needs of a target audience.

In addition to coursework in typography, design principles, and production, you’ll have at least one internship experience in an appropriate design-related setting. The capstone experience for visual communication design students is a senior show, planned and executed by the senior design majors. This project requires you to work with your peers to budget, design, and promote a show of your work for the community.
