About

The MA Design for Art Direction course at University of the Arts London (UAL) gives visual communicators and designers the practical, critical and conceptual skills to develop their potential in the field of art direction.

Overview

The MA Design for Art Direction course at University of the Arts London (UAL) takes a holistic approach to the creative industries. Through its multi-disciplinary nature, the course encourages the discovery of the potential to work across sectors in order to produce campaigns that educate and innovate for commercial, cultural and non-profit sectors.

Across five units, you’ll consider the politics and ownership of the different means of communication, alongside the role of publishing platforms, examining how these allow for creative work to engage with users in flexible ways.

You’ll develop cross-disciplinary research projects, through the intersections of art, design, science and technology, and learn to present these ideas in educational and engaging ways.

Reflecting on the role of the creative studio as a powerful instrument for broadening the public imagination, you’ll learn to communicate the cultural, social and political moment through the sophisticated aesthetics of visual communication.
