Course - Digital Design

Vancouver Film School - VFS

As a Digital Designer, you like to organize information and present it as a visual experience, building an emotional connection with your audience. In Vancouver Film School’s Digital Design program, you learn to use graphic design and computer-generated imagery to convey a message that helps educate, persuade, and/or entertain your audience. There are three main fields of Digital Design careers.

Communication Design

Communication Design (aka Graphic Design) combines an understanding of colour, type, and composition with an audience-centred marketing approach to convey a specific message (like social causes or product promotion) to a targeted group. You’ll work on projects that include logo design, advertising, and print and packaging design.

Interactive Design

Interactive Design (aka User Experience Design) focuses on satisfying the needs and desires of the people who interact with a product or service, while also conveying a branded message. The interactions might take place through websites, apps for mobile, or other touch screens. Your projects will involve designing the user interface (aka UI design), persona development, and the overall user experience (UX) design.

Motion Design

Motion Design (aka Motion Graphic Design) merges video footage with audio and 2D or 3D animation to create the illusion of movement. Motion designers are responsible for title sequences, online graphics, as well as visually enhanced films, commercials, and videos.
