Communication Design

Information is the core of communication

The Communication Design specialization combines traditional imaging and design with the latest technologies and moving images. However, tools are supposed to inspire communication designers, who consciously and responsibly develop effective messages. You must understand the people with whom you communicate and you must know what you want to convey. What you do, as a communication designer, will influence someone’s choices, decisions and experience.
