Department of Communication Design

Communication Design is a field rather than a discipline, and, in its many forms, makes an increasingly powerful contribution to the cultural and economic life of contemporary society. It exists in the public domain, is an indicator of current cultural thinking, and is a catalyst for social, cultural, political and economic change.

The Department of Communication Design encourages the application of design methodologies into new and diverse creative remits, the outcomes of which will not necessarily be aesthetics or products, but more so, will be outcomes that challenge, redefine and propose new roles for the designer and design in contemporary culture.

Our distinctive approach focuses on design as a means for communicating meaningful messages, gathering content, organising information, creating and presenting narratives and experiences, while always looking to affect change.
