The Visual Communication Design Certificate provides students with introductory to intermediate level design techniques, skills, and concepts to enhance their current practice, pivot career paths, or in preparation for further education.

Students will take courses in typography, design software, data visualization, web design, branding, and publication design, as well as professional development to gain knowledge in contemporary design techniques and practices. From colour theory and drawing, to representing research in compelling visual form, students will be introduced to communication design skills to better convey ideas to a client or audience.

In addition, students of this program will focus on specialized interests via elective courses with options for digital illustration, digital photography, or user experience design. Through completion of assigned and independent projects, as well as in-class presentations and critiques, students will have the opportunity to prepare a portfolio of work and launch their online presence as an up-and-coming Visual Communication Designer.

Having just recently graduated from Emily Carr's Communication Design department I have to say that the experience I had while attending the school was above and beyond anything I had expected. Four or Five years ago while looking for post secondary design programs Emily Carr really stood out to me as a school that taught more than just the technical skills needed to move forward as a creative. Emily Carr teaches and allows you to strengthen your thinking processes behind creating. Coming out of the BDES program I truly feel confident in my abilities to think as a designer and bring new ideas to help solidify my work. I feel like I gain so much more from Emily Carr than just a post secondary education and degree, but rather a really life changing experience that came with a lot of learning and new and amazing people.
