|Department||London College of Communication, University of the Arts London|
MA Design for Art Direction at London College of Communication gives visual communicators and designers the practical, critical and conceptual skills to develop their potential in the field of art direction. Across five units, you’ll consider the politics and ownership of the different means of communication, alongside the role of publishing platforms, examining how these allow for creative work to engage with users in flexible ways. You’ll develop cross-disciplinary research projects, through the intersections of art, design, science and technology, and learn to present these ideas in educational and engaging ways. Reflecting on the role of the creative studio as a powerful instrument for broadening the public imagination, you’ll learn to communicate the cultural, social and political moment through the sophisticated aesthetics of visual communication.
