Digital Design Consultants (DDCs) work with individual clients and businesses to determine what will boost their engagement and revenue. The multi-skilled digital design consultant will then craft those digital products, creating dynamic campaigns for their clients.
This course has been designed in conjunction with employers to meet the demands of the digital design industry and the need for DDCs to be agile producers of the future. To that end, those who successfully graduate will obtain a BA (Hons) Digital Design Consultancy in two years. This allows for a quicker route into industry, the possibility for less financial aid and the ability to apply your contemporary theoretical and practical knowledge to the workplace faster.
Digital Design Consultancy is a practical multimedia course that spans design, video, web marketing and animation disciplines.
Digital Design Consultants (DDCs) use their expertise of social media, media design, marketing and advertising, alongside good professional business practice, to advise clients about how to generate engaging material, such as animations, digital and printed promotional branding, and video productions to aid in their client’s business growth.
The independent learning focus embedded within the course will give future DDCs the confidence to produce the best quality deliverables for their clients, using the latest portable media equipment and digital technologies. Students are encouraged to think and act quickly, be creators and make products for their clients that inspire customers to invest.
