Communication Design

The future demands creatives with a wide range of skills to drive innovation. If you want to make a difference in our rapidly changing society, this is a good place to start. Working at the intersection of graphic design, business and technology, communication designers craft delightful experiences. While aesthetic and design sensibilities underpin communication design, the broad exposure to content creation, psychology, branding, digital marketing and experience design will train you to be adaptable in the workforce of today. You will have exciting career opportunities in growing sectors such as healthcare, retail, financial services, InfoComm technology and more. Electives that go beyond design and encourage play and experimentation, will encourage you to think out of the box and emerge as a highly versatile and dynamic young designer of tomorrow.

Burial Hill is an explorative study into a lesser depicted side of one of Singapore’s proclaimed “sleepy” towns, Toa Payoh.

The publication seeks to shed light on what truly encompasses the term “gangster”. It broaches themes such as coming of age and empathy, seeking to humanise these delinquents—who are perhaps some of the most human of us all.

We are living in a selfie-obsessed world. Most of us upload and curate our images on social media to gain affirmation for our appearances. We have developed a distorted view of our self-worth and beauty standards, and some, unfortunately, develop a form of body dysmorphia disorder called Selfie Dysmorphia.

Faceshop is a typographic educational campaign disguised as a cosmetic surgery clinic that aims to bring awareness about Selfie Dysmorphia, and the message that surgery is not the answer to self-confidence.
