At the start, a series of set projects will refine essential design and image production skills. These practical projects will build confidence in both traditional and digital skills at the same time as developing an informed awareness of the new technologies, experiential platforms and evolving spaces in which images are used to create and communicate contemporary fashion and its brand identities.
These practical projects are supported by lectures and seminars that build core knowledge of the key principles and contemporary strategies of visual branding, marketing and promotion as well as trend prediction and analysis, social media and digital influencers.
