Studio VisCom 03: Design Futures

Studio brief

Design Futures: A studio that authors via the lens of traditional and digital products as tools for design making, thinking, seeing and storytelling. Projects will encourage students to interrogate and refine their illustrative and design professions via factual, experimental and industry-led methods and processes. 

Students will explore the future possibilities of visual communication through dynamic  research, testing and production in order to push the boundaries and archetypes that currently exist within their respective fields. Themes explored include:

  • architecture as a tool for branding
  • sci-fi then and now
  • typography and symbolism

The studio caters for students of graphic design, illustration and publishing. Together we will build an environment that encourages new approaches to design and illustration and relishes in these prospects. At the forefront of our manifesto will be new definitions of what graphic design, illustration and publishing was, is and can be.
