Do you love drawing and designing? Visual Communication Design is the subject for you! VCD is a practical art subject that looks at how information and ideas are communicated in the areas of communication, environmental and industrial design (think advertising, architecture and product design).  The content and form of these communications are explored, along with the materials and methods that students use to produce their work. Drawing plays a significant role in this subject, wherein students are required to employ a range of 2D and 3D drawing conventions to represent their ideas.
