Description Design Project will provide students with the opportunity to work in a 'real world' context. Students will learn how to construct a meaningful promotional campaign for a socially responsible purpose. The campaign will be based on an identified social or environmental issue, utilizing responsible design practices. Through research and planning, in relation to a set of relevant constraints: such as cultural, social, environmental, site and audience, students will develop a design and communication strategy for the campaign that utilises the appropriate media, message and approach, to address the identified target audience, based on research findings.
