MA Graphic Design encourages designers to explore ways to develop understanding between cocommunicators, through systematically interrogating design practice, and by generating alternative visual solutions. MA students enquire into ways that users make meaning from graphic design in order to take into consideration a range of factors (such as materiality and site) that potentially contribute to communication processes. Students seek to anticipate the possible consequences of their design interventions, including the meanings constructed through their practice, in relation to ethical and sustainability issues as well as to other relevant contexts. Creative approaches are required that respond to complex situations in which many problems reside. Methodologies are therefore developed on the course that identify particular research foci; where practice is supported by relevant lines of enquiry, research methods, and appropriate theoretical frameworks. Outcomes are not constrained by media or by limited interpretations of what it is to be a graphic designer. Consequently an outcome might involve the design of an experience or service, as much as it might concern more conventional forms of graphic production.
