BA Graphic Design

The BA Graphic 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.

Our Graphic Design students are encouraged to apply design methodologies to new and diverse creative remits, the outcomes of which may not necessarily be aesthetics or products, but rather work that challenges, redefines and proposes 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.
