About this Unit
This unit explores the powerful qualities of illustration when used as a visual communication strategy in the design of popular culture: within an advertising campaign and as social commentary through editorial illustration. The potential of a range of illustrative styles, mediums and techniques, will be explored through experimentation with a variety of visual strategies that utilize lateral thinking, linked to the design of professional concepts, developmental processes and media considerations.
