Description of module content:

In Graphic Design Studio 3 you will build on your established understanding of principles of graphic design, to now focus on dimensions of time and movement within visual communication. When we add the dimension of time to graphic design, we open up a huge range of possibilities for the visual communication of narratives and information with dynamic motion over duration: motion graphics. You will learn about foundational principles of animation and moving image design through employing iterative research and development processes to move from analysis and understanding of the brief, to planning, constructing and delivering complete motion graphic outputs which communicate with intended audiences.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Research, analyse and interpret given design briefs through critical examination of design precedent, social context and culture.

LO2: Demonstrate an understanding of principle theories and concepts of animation and motion graphics.

LO3: Apply knowledge and understanding of design skills and techniques to plan and create imaginative motion graphics outputs which visually communicate information and narratives to intended audiences

LO4: Use analog and digital techniques to create motion graphic outputs for specified applications and contexts

LO5: Plan, and deliver complex motion graphic projects through an iterative process of development and testing
