Master in Visual Design


Course Duration - 1 Year

Visual and graphic communication uses visual language and arts to communicate ideas and messages. Through visual organisation of information, professionals in this field create powerful user experiences across industries – from healthcare to politics. Through the use of design elements, such as lettering, color, symbols, and images, visual communication can be used to influence, entertain, inform, and even persuade audiences.
A cross-disciplinary field, visual communication brings together typography, motion design, branding, design strategy, and information design to create mass communication and media products in both digital and printed mediums. Examples include magazines, newspapers, books, catalogs, and websites. A master in visual or graphic communication and design prepares graduates for senior- or director – level careers in multimedia, printing (e.g. lithography, print marketing, color reproduction), creative management, art direction, and more.
