Selected major: Motion Design
Design motion content for every conceivable media platform – from sky-scraping digital billboards, to augmented reality and virtual reality environments, to cinema screens, to discreet wearable devices. Using a design-led approach to motion design, you will problem-solve, plan storyboards, create narratives, design motion, build interaction, shoot video, engage in post-production, and explore new technology.
Designers don’t just make things beautiful and purposeful, they create the items that we come to rely on every day, the ideas that propel us forward and change the world. After all, where would we be without Times New Roman, WhatsApp, or the Nike Swoosh?
Whether you’re passionate about a particular path or still exploring what it is that interests you, our Bachelor of Design will give you skills and knowledge across a range of disciplines, with core subjects in 20th century design, typography, brand and identity design and more.
All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In your final-year Captone Project, you’ll team up with other students to work on an industry-related project relevant to your major area of study. For example, communication design students worked on projects briefed by the City of Boroondara, City of Melbourne, Melbourne Water and Metro Tunnel.

Throughout my degree, I worked on a variety of exciting design projects that helped me build my portfolio. For one of these projects, I won an Adobe Design Achievement Award. Swinburne allowed me to develop my self-confidence and gave me the courage to be heard and seen.
