You will complete projects including a DL postcard, DVD slip cover, disc label, HTML newsletter, HTML website, Flash animation, Flash video, Flash website, and group website (Flash and HTML).

In the second year, you will enhance your design skills by exploring layout and typography. You will develop visual literacy through maintaining a visual diary and learn about writing styles for varying multimedia content.

You will also complete several projects, including logo development and corporate identity, Illustrator Portrait, an advertising pitch (group exercise), a Flash game, Flash digital portfolio and After Effects video sequence.
