We are a future facing Design Programme working within the Creative Industries. Design and Digital Arts is very much about designing for future societies. Students on the programme explore how current technologies can facilitate speculative design proposals with a strong emphasis on in-depth design research and experimentation.
Areas covered include, Interaction Design, Immersive Experience Design and Speculative Design, in which students explore a range of interactive software and hardware technologies. The course also develops students skills in research, presentation, project management and design thinking through dynamic and exciting design projects often in collaboration with our industrial partners.
Previous final projects have included mobile viral advertising campaigns, app design, lighting installations, Interactive Experience Design, Immersive Environments, Transmedia Campaign Design all highlighting the creative opportunities that exist on Design and Digital Arts.
Digital Arts and Design provides you with the forecasting methods to analyse design problems and at the same time provoke fresh imagination about the ways in which flows of goods and ideas will be packaged and circulated in the digital world. Alongside these techniques the programme also provides you with the technical skills and creative inspiration to take an art director's approach to shaping the character of our virtual landscape.
