Overview

As a Graphic Design student at UArts, you'll not only explore new technologies but old-world craft – from working with the latest equipment for digital video and sound recording, to 3-D printing and model-making, to creating hand-sewn books and letters cut from stone.

  • Be experienced in both hierarchical and non-hierarchical forms of collaboration as professional preparation
  • Possess a unique intellectual and visual voice
  • Be able to adapt to a changing, unpredictable world and its communication needs where the methods of communication can be expected to evolve and expand.
  • Demonstrate a strong work ethic driven by both logical and inventive working processes.
  • Possess a high level of expertise within industry-standard technological environments and the propensity to prototype for high-level, complex technologically-based practices.
