Visual Communication

A week-long motion graphics and interaction master class project, delivered by visiting artists Mark Thomas and Mat Norman (Creative Leads at Soup Collective in Manchester) for level 5 BA Illustration, BA Graphic Design and Postgraduate students wishing to join.

This student master class takes the theme of Open-Story, addressing transmedia narrative in a post linear open digital environment. The master class will be delivered through a number of activities throughout the week that identify new paradigms and techniques of storytelling in an open digital age, planting the seeds for future development in the motion and interaction subject area of the Visual Communication curriculum. The enhancement programme will be led by both internal staff and invited researchers and practitioners in the field, including Manchester based interactive media arts developers Mark Thomas and Mat Norman from Soup Collective soupco.tv and soupcollective.co.uk, providing practical experiences, creative skills and knowledge sharing opportunities.

At Brighton we deliver innovation in graphic design and illustration practice with a teaching team who are made up of leading practitioners, researchers and academics who deliver research informed teaching to facilitate a culture of critical evaluation, reflection and professional application. Our impressive alumni, include It’s Nice That, Jacob Robinson Photographer / Film maker for the BBC, Millie Scarlett Davies Designer at Pentagram, Joe Miller Art Director at M&C Saatchi, Aneel Kalsi, Art Director at Wallpaper*, Kelly Satchell Designer at Wieden and Kennedy David Wilson, Crowd Talks, Matt Dent, Katie Scott, David Foldvari, Sanna Annukka, Jim Stoten, Jasper Goodall, Isabel Greenberg and Kyle Bean.

We fully support a convergent and multidisciplinary approach of the designer/illustrator as an “author, creative, innovator, producer, director and/or entrepreneur” model. Multiple forms of publishing coexist and information is accessed in a variety of ways. The studio is a laboratory, incorporating both the analogue and digital, through spatial and temporal practices. This enables students to make, explore, create, play, imagine and craft, to consider intent, refine, and undertake intellectual enquiry, critical reflection, professionalism and distinctiveness.

We facilitate students to work as multi-disciplinary practitioners, learning contemporary tools for communication and developing skills for employment but also defining the jobs of the future in visual communication, as thinking designers with responsibility.
