About Visual Communication Design - Illustration

The field of illustration holds a more traditional history and perspective within the program, however, more modern techniques are covered as well. The role of illustrator is based in the fine arts but responds directly to the audience and the client. Similar to Graphic Design, the illustrator is responsible for defining the audience and communicating through imagery, which is appropriate and understood by the audience. The program covers a variety of types of illustration including editorial, educational, technical, as well as character development and other forms of illustration.
