Elouise Grohs, Final Major Project.
Preparation for the workplace is embedded within learning throughout the three years of study with increasing focus in the latter part of the course. The industrial contexts within visual communication and illustration that this course serves are principally but not exclusively, commissioned / client led artwork, where practitioners work free-lance, are self-employed or work instead of or alongside paid work such as in small creative businesses or creative agencies. The areas of applied practice for visual communication can include the traditional markets for illustration (publishing and advertising), as well as concept art, decorative arts for merchandising, animation and moving image, graphic design and art direction.
This list is not exclusive and many students move into areas of practice outside of this which can include - art and psychotherapy; community arts; performing arts; teaching; publishing; advertising; employment in the industries of broadcasting, media, fashion, music and film. Some students pursue more self-directed practice in fine art, curatorial practice and research.
