Organisation profile

The Institute of Visual Design provides a setting for teaching, research and artistic development in all forms of visual design. We study visual identity, universes for television and film, and the development of games and digital products. The Institute examines notions of identity, experiences and interaction. We work on computer games, analyse fonts/types and develop new ones. We work on screens for concerts, street signs and games, and applications for the next smart phone. In other words, we work on visual communication for every aspect of daily life.
