Design Projects 3: Designing for Print and Graphic Environments

Course code DESN2031Units 20Level 2000Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Design, Communication and IT

This course introduces students to a variety of design for print and static 3D / environmental graphic applications through a series of practical and experimental project briefs. It will cover key professional applications of design for print and static 3D / environmental graphic media as well as enabling opportunities for more experimental approaches to their use. It will explore the relationship between content generation and image, type and graphic interplay with particular emphasis on layout design and static 3D / environmental graphics.
