DVB202 Visual Narrative Design

This unit provides theoretical, conceptual, technical and research skills to produce innovative and effective narrative-based visual communication across design industry contexts. It aids you to develop key portfolio works which demonstrate a growing capacity for designing in this creative space. While much contemporary visual communication requires short, sharp and immediate impact and engagement for targeted audiences, others require different methods of communication to deliver complex, extended messages and information. This unit addresses principles and techniques of visual storytelling across multiple media forms such as graphic novels, and exhibition, editorial, interface and games design. It also looks at approaches and strategies for transmedia storytelling and experience design. This unit builds upon the Visual Communication specialisation foundations, expanding the scope of projects you are equipped for.
