During the unit you will be introduced to subject areas including; research strategies; story boarding; narrative development; identity and branding; grid structures and page layout; and the representation of a range of social issues through visual communication. You will also be introduced to basic animation technology using Adobe Photoshop and Flash as well as industry standard design technology such as Adobe Indesign.
