Illustration is a powerful visual language which defies boundaries and extends across all art and design disciplines. Traditionally it was mainly associated with bringing words to life in the publishing industries and in advertising campaigns, however, through the explosion of new technologies and media, illustration has never enjoyed such currency and is now encountered in every aspect of our daily lives. In a culturally-rich and dynamic environment, our BA Illustration students are encouraged to develop their image-making skills and problem-solving abilities throughout the programme; whilst constantly being challenged to create original work that is strong in content and aesthetically engaging. Thorough research is an on-going necessity so that students are able to respond to diverse and demanding project briefs, and explore what illustration could be, not just what it is.
