Design Projects 4: Designing for Screen and Movement

Course code DESN2041Units 20Level 2000Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Design, Communication and IT

This course introduces students to a variety of design for screen based moving and interactive media applications through a series of practical and experimental project briefs. It will cover key professional applications of design for screen based moving and interactive visual 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 for screen based moving and interactive media.

Not available in 2014

ObjectivesOn completion of this course students will be able to:
1. Conceive and design a variety of screen based moving and interactive forms of visual communication;
2. Demonstrate and apply a creative understanding of the interplay between content and moving image, type and graphic elements;
3. Generate content for professional and experimental screen based moving and interactive design applications;
4. Complete design projects to production ready standards through project driven self-tuition of relevant production skills.
