Academic and Design Communication


By drawing on a variety of theoretical frameworks from the disciplines of architecture, design and semiotics, Academic and Design Communication provides innovative ways in which to construct, analyse, interpret and redesign various modes of design from a social semiotic perspective. The course is constructed to develop the necessary skills to move between and synthesise various means of communication, turning ideas into designs and turning designs into verbal and written texts. Academic and Design Communication develops a community of design practitioners who can critically reflect on design and successfully explicate their own designs by incorporating appropriate modes of communication in their seminars, presentations and reports.
