Learn the tools, strategies and design thinking methodologies required to be an adaptive, multidisciplinary communications designer. From day one, you are introduced to the professional design world, developing your craft in our purpose-built facilities under the guidance of industry leaders and established designers. You will learn how to interpret design briefs and develop specialised skills in user experience design, web design and interactivity, as well as traditional skills in typography, branding and print design. You will benefit from Deakin’s networks and relationships with the design industry and have many opportunities to include your work in exhibitions and showcases.

In your final year, you will take part in a collaborative industry project, working in a studio setting with industry and commercial partners. Experience resolving a real-world creative project from conception to completion will equip you with the in-demand skills that employers look for.

The Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) is formally recognised by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) so you will be up-to-date with the current industry practices and developments.
