Merging ever-expansive new technologies into our lives in a way that serves us, rather than frustrate us, is one of the great design challenges of our time.

Studying Design (Visual Communication) is a great way to gain the skills needed to gain a job in the design industry, but what jobs can you get?

Designers can work in a large range of roles and companies, often working in advertising agencies, graphic design houses, commercial art studios, web and UX design companies, to name a few. 

However, by equipping yourself with a deep understanding of core design principles, the design process, and the technical skills required, you can tackle projects in visual, spatial, interactive, experience and human-centred design. That means the jobs that digital designers can get are varied and abundant.

Take a peek at some career paths that you could choose to specialise in after studying the Design (Visual Communication) course.
