Additional information

Emnet byr kun på et begrenset antall forelesninger og baserer seg i stor grad på selvstudium og et individuelt designprosjekt innen merkevarebygging, bedriftsprofilering eller eventprofilering. Designprosjektet inkluderer blant annet utvikling av en rekke designelementer og kommunikasjonflater (eksempelvis logo, visittkort, brevark, markedsføringsmateriell, årsrapport, emballasje, nettsted). I tillegg skal en enkel designmanual og en prosjektrapport utarbeides. Prosjektrapporten skal inneholde referanser til emnets læremidler og støtteliteratur. Emnet er kun tilgjengelig for Bachelor i mediedesign.
