Bachelor of Design

If you’re passionate about contemporary design opportunities and designing for a sustainable future, this degree will equip you with the creative and technical skills and insights to rise to future design challenges. You will gain an understanding of design thinking techniques, how the world impacts design, and how design shapes the world around us.

In partnership with leading experts and industry, you will gain the skills to tackle real design challenges and devise leading-edge strategies and solutions. Advance your critical and strategic thinking and gain new perspectives on sustainability, while also learning to present your ideas clearly and powerfully.


Visual Communication Design

Explore many different forms of visual and graphic communication and branding, and understand the social contexts and environmental responsibilities of design. You’ll learn to develop design solutions, which inform, persuade, provoke, or entertain your audience. You’ll focus on your passion, but also learn how to effectively present and communicate your ideas within this evolving industry.

Interior and Spatial Design

The major prepares students to focus on diverse spaces and societies that creatively imagines interiors and public urban spaces in every domain and on every scale, from private to public, local to global. With an emphasis on social and environmental justice, designing for sustainability, liveability, diversity and inclusion are core to theory and practice. Students acquire a broad foundation of technical skills across a range of architectural and digital design programs, as well as engaging in theoretical knowledge, design process skills and analysis and critical thought.

Product Design

Can’t wait to get your hands on a 3D printer? The equipment and technology you have the chance to use at Griffith is state-of-the art and this means there are very few limits to what you can create. Undertake a range of creative projects and put our technology to the test, using 3D printing, 3D modelling, 3D scanning, laser cutting and CNC routing equipment.

Immersive Design

If you can imagine it, you can design it! Harness the power of digital software to imagine, design, and construct 3D forms to create immersive experiences in virtual environments. This technology is being applied to: visualise concepts and data across architecture, health and engineering; create reconstructions in the fields of archaeology and criminology; create virtual and augmented realities for use in gameplay and education.

Interaction Design

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the interaction design major will develop your technical competency and digital creativity. Study interactive design methods, electronic audio, visual media, computation and critical thinking. Combine these skills to produce imaginative concepts, functioning prototypes, digital audio-visual artefacts, and technically mediated interaction designs for everyday life.
