About this Unit
In this unit, students begin to situate their graphic design practice within a contemporary professional context. Designers today need to collaborate with colleagues or other professionals, and the majority of graphic design briefs require solutions that converge across a variety of media platforms and two, three or four dimensions. Students will undertake projects that extend their design thinking in these areas. Part of the unit requires students to work as part of a team, to develop content and a solution that engages the audience through a range of different media. Throughout this unit, students continue to extend their visual language, and associated material and digital skills.
