Graphic & Digital Design

Major

Graphic & Digital Design is studied as a major in the Bachelor of Design Arts. For more information on the degree structure, fees and entry requirements, see our Bachelor of Design Arts.

The Graphic & Digital Design major will equip you with the skills to translate your creative concepts for delivery through print, typography, branding, packaging and digital design.

The major provides a detailed technical framework to help you understand leading digital tools, allowing you to realise your designs, advance your visual literacy and cultivate a personal design ethos.

Major Details

Our majors are taught through design ‘laboratories’ that replicate the creative studio process used by professionals in creative areas.  The ‘lab’ is where students and mentors collaborate and you will progress your concepts into tangible final design outcomes.

Your labs are designed around different themes so each trimester you might be responding to an industry brief, working on a global project or with a global brand, or generating ideas to solve contemporary issues. Your final ‘lab’ is self-directed and you have the opportunity to work in teams to culminate your graduate exhibition.
