Design is more than the way things look; it’s also the way things move, animate and behave, the way they sound, the way they feel and the way we interact with them. Design is central to everything we do on Digital Media Design.

Students design and produce innovative new applications of digital technology, from Social Media to ‘The Internet of Things’, augmented reality, wearable and physical computing, and virtual worlds.

We utilise the latest software and teaching approaches:

  • 2D design with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
  • 3D modelling, animation and environment design with Maya and Unity 3D
  • Motion graphics, film editing and animation with After Effects, Premiere and Flash.

In the final year, students choose to specialise in one of four pathways:

Interaction Design

Creating interactive digital media, physical installations, web and mobile applications, exploring the Internet of Things and Augmented Reality. Taking interaction beyond the screen, into the physical environment.

Game Design

Building on the rich history of video games with new technologies, modes of interaction and storytelling to create not only new games, but new kinds of gaming.

Information Design

Translating data into graphics, animation and sound. Exploring the new aesthetic of Infographics and sonification across a range of screen based media, websites, projection mapping and immersive full dome environments.

Live Media Design

Working with live media audiovisual tools, and experiments in perception.
