The UK is a world leader in the media production industries with numerous film post-production, broadcast and games companies located in the London area. The continued digitisation of the multimedia industry and the different types and flexibility of digital transmission of media has resulted in the diversification of multimedia. Many existing multimedia organisations have found it very difficult to keep up with the incredible pace of change, and this is resulting in the emergence of a great number of small and medium sized specialist multimedia organisations. The growth of these multimedia design companies means there is a growing demand for artistically talented and technically skilled graduates, who show artistic design talent.

This new course provides a unique mix of multimedia and interaction design processes, design of 3D virtual reality and animation media, AV media and effects, and intelligent media combined with real and virtual studio and on-location multimedia creation. It not only focuses on the creative art and design aspects of digital media, but also on the theory and practice of the technical tools and techniques required for creating intelligent, interactive real and virtual reality media through the development of design and technology knowledge, understanding and skills.

This programme in aims to develop a thorough knowledge of the design principles and techniques required for the design of combined real and virtual interactive and intelligent multimedia and an appreciation of the current research directions and opportunities that are available in this field of research.

Specific aims of this programme are to:

- Develop advanced knowledge and skills relevant to the design and creation of combined real and virtual interactive and intelligent multimedia and tools to assist in the creation of combined real and virtual interactive and intelligent multimedia.
- Develop the ability of designing complex combined real and virtual interactive and intelligent multimedia creations, and the versatility to apply a variety of different design tools and technologies across a range of different media areas to realise the creation.
- Develop creativity and independent learning ability required for continuing professional development, further research, and for acquiring new skills at a high level.

Overview

This dynamic new course will prepare you for the world of contemporary, global fashion design, improving your professional skills, your academic understanding and your industry knowledge.

You’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of the international fashion world, and the business-led factors that influence professional practice.

Our course mixes traditional and experimental fashion design processes with theory and practical work. This will encourage you to think about important issues and future trends in the fashion industry and how you could adapt or improve upon your design, styling, marketing or promotional work. For example, you might explore relationships between your design process, marketing strategy and psychological theories. Or you might look at the connections between mathematics and pattern-cutting; or sustainable design and production processes.

We'll investigate different markets and consumers, too. Having learned more about people's wants and needs, you'll use your insight to create innovative designs, along with branding and promotional strategies.

Throughout the course you'll be working closely with other students. Together, we'll share and debate our ideas and working practices, and learn to critically analyse our work.

Your studies will take place over three trimesters in a single calendar year.

Careers

Our course will equip you with the skills, knowledge and professional understanding you need to work as a fashion designer. You’ll also be well-prepared for related roles, such as styling and promotion, brand and marketing management, PR management/press, fashion production, buying or trend forecasting.

Or you might decide to make use of all these skills by becoming a freelance fashion designer, managing your own brand.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll benefit from our links with industry professionals, academics and freelancers, who regularly contribute to the course, as well as our careers events including Creative Front Futures and Anglia Ruskin's Big Pitch competition, created for students with an entrepreneurial spirit.
