  • Digital Studio’s. Interactive multimedia design is the primary focus, which includes website design, mobile app prototyping, interactive media and animation and 3D modelling and visualisation for screen-based content.  
  • Design and Creative Studio’s. Graphic, illustrative and motion design outcomes are produced by using Adobe CC applications including InDesign, Illustrator, After Effects and Photoshop.  
  • Image Making. Original content for major projects is created through drawing, and by using and experimenting with traditional printmaking and photography techniques.
