Stephen Barrett


Aimed at students applying to MA Graphic Communication Design with experience from outside of the discipline, this course will help you to bridge the gap between your knowledge and experiences and the requirements of MAGCD. This is a three-week, full time course with 30 hours contact time with teaching staff and is comprised of lectures, seminars, workshops, and both independent and collaborative studio-based activity. Projects are typographically led, with broader discussions/explorations of systems, information and communication design. The course will also introduce you to the historical, social and political context of communication design, and encourage you to begin to consider your position within this discipline.
