This excellent international and national reputation in Graphic Communication and Illustration is the result of the sustained high-quality research and teaching of its well-established and dedicated team.

We cover the cultural and social applications of graphic and communication design, illustration, visualization, drawing, design methods and research.

Our shared focus emerges from a shared investigation into the applications of design methods to produce effective communications. This includes design pedagogy, industrial engagement, social activism and social enterprise, and the application of design methods and practices to address the specific visual culture of diverse user groups.
