Module overview

In this module you will be exposed to the principles and practices of the four communities of learning which form one of the distinctive features of the Graphic Communication programme. These communities are:

  • Identity / Information;
  • Design for good;
  • Language / Narrative;
  • Future Environments.

You will explore all communities and learn about the distinctive features of each. Although these communities correspond to an area of professional practice these are broad and open-ended. Alongside this you will continue to develop your skills in photography, motion design, graphic design and illustration. The essential theories, practices and principles of graphic communication learnt in semester one will be integrated and applied with the learning from these communities helping to nurture your understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary practice.
