Digital art and design
Students undertaking digital art and design are encouraged to develop their individual creative potential through a broad range of digital projects, for both visual artists and media designers. Students are taught the basics of creating static and moving photomontage imagery while investigating design elements, processing strategies, its history and related theory. From there, graphic design outcomes and processes are explored through vector and bitmap imagery using the latest Adobe software and Mac computers in the digital art and design labs.
Students engage in innovative creative practices across a broad range of communication processes, from expressive drawing to graphic illustration, printed posters, artists books, magazines and digital publications, to information design, 2D and 3D modelling and animation.
The changing nature of publications illustrates a need for multi-skilled practitioners. Publication design is learnt and students incorporate traditional skills of integrated image creation, colour management, branding, typography with interactivity and motion graphics into their layouts, illustrations and advertisements. All student outcomes add to an extensive folio showcasing skills and conceptual maturity across a variety of media and communication platforms.
