Advertising Design is a three-year degree programme focused on producing creative advertising content. Students are trained to master persuasive communication through design and multimedia applications. This programme emphasises on the understanding of branding, positioning, advertising strategy, media applications and product solutions. The creative process and final artwork are given great emphasis in order for our students to develop and enhance their skills and abilities to excel in this field.
