Unit 1 - Research, risk and context
This unit is an introduction to your course, the College and the University. It will help you position your current knowledge and experience within the field of graphic design practice and research.
You’ll start to learn about the 3 key areas on the course: design practice, research and writing. You'll have online and on campus inductions to the learning resources at Chelsea college of Arts. A series of short projects will introduce you to graphic design theory and visual research methods.
Cross-disciplinary lectures and seminars will cover a variety of applications for graphic design within different contexts. These will help you decide what and where your focus will be as a designer.
Unit 2 - Practice, development and realisation
In this unit you will produce a portfolio of work and develop your identity as a designer. You’ll work on a series of set and live projects with external studios and organisations. You’ll also produce a piece of design writing that explores questions and ideas that are relevant to your practice. This will refine your focus and your individual ambition towards postgraduate study
