DVB301 Kinetic Image and Text

Moving image and typographic design has become a leading form of communication in contemporary society, from online contexts, to film and television, to digital signage. An in-depth understanding of and creative skills in motion-based design are essential for visual designers to work on major campaigns and address all client needs. This unit provides you with knowledge of key theoretical approaches, techniques and methods of kinetic design and allows you to explore these through practice within studio-based assessment projects. In taking this focus, the unit builds directly upon prior foundations of Image Design and Typography in the Visual Communication specialisation and prepares students to work at a further, advanced level within the industry.
