Description of module content:

The aim of this module is to develop skills in the creative and practical aspects of digital image manipulation and internally recognisable visual conventions. Students will demonstrate digital design software and hardware skills and knowledge and apply these towards the creation of a portfolio of visual design work. There will be an introduction to advanced techniques for inputting, creating, manipulating, enhancing, and storing digital images. Students will implement the principles of how to prepare digital files for screen, print and digital manufacturing outputs following international conventions. Students will develop their visual presentation skills, which will allow them to prepare a physical and web-based portfolio of visual creative output, on which to build during their course of study.
