BA (hons) Illustration

Illustration has the power to spark imagination and to shed light on complex subject matter. A diverse and expanding discipline, it encompasses moving image, sound, 3D forms and new languages through emerging technologies. Illustrators illuminate ideas, texts and narratives, often initiated by clients and collaborators commercially, but increasingly as authors and directors of their own projects.

Illustration always has a purpose, from enhancing literature and the everyday, to enabling understanding of science, medicine and health, psychology, politics and comers. It may be encountered in magazines and advertisements, and it is integral to the animation and film professions.
