Communication design is a media-oriented discipline where the students are trained by experts in advertising and media industry. The primary aim of our programme is to foster visual communication skills and design thinking
in the areas of socio – political, cultural and educational media through art and design. The students undergo carefully designed courses such as advertisement & packaging design, visual communication and
brand identity design.
The discipline of communication design further branches out in second year into two specializations which the student can choose based on their interest:
Specializations (Communication Design):
The discipline of graphic design enables their students to create professional opportunities for themselves in the dynamic and glamorous industry of brand communication and advertisement design, after a rigorous training
of four years by media professionals, graphic designers and artists.
USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN:
User experience design (UED) is a design centric approach towards understanding the human interaction with its environment. The course, popularly known by its abbreviations: UXD, UED, or XD is the process of enhancing user
satisfaction with a product / service by improving the usability, accessibility, and desirability provided in the interaction with a product.
It includes following
- User study
- Visual design
- Interaction design
- Human psychology
- Human factors
It is an end to end design process for any design solution which focuses on user-centred design. Through this process, students understand business goals, user needs, and challenges to perform the task. Ux designers are
responsible for integrating functionality and making product efficient and usable. Therefore, while interacting with such products overall satisfaction of the user increases.
The Industrial design programme at SSPAD concentrates on developing skills, knowledge and a problem-solving attitude among students who graduate from Symbiosis not merely as designers, but also as a socially aware citizen
The students are encouraged to solve socially relevant problems during the course and interact with industries, institutions and social organizations during their project to understand, study, analyse and solve various
kinds of existing problems. The final degree projects are an amalgamation of their skills, intelligence and social awareness put together in the form a product or system design.
Specializations (Industrial Design):
Every product is the result of a process which begins with a concept or an idea and evolves into a design which can be manufactured. The product design team at SSPAD is enthusiastic about innovation and training students
with the latest softwares and technologies in the industrial design arena.
Interior Space Design:
From learning our historical past of art and architecture to designing modern living spaces with careful understanding of human ergonomics, interior space design emphasizes on the construction of functional and aesthetic
interior spaces. The course enables a student to enhance their visual understanding through site visits and develop their technical skills through training in computer aided drawings.
