LSDM MA Design – Course Presentation


Design has become more important to business
than ever before. By using research, brainstorming and prototyping techniques, design establishes
a close dialogue with consumers, identifying opportunities for the application of creative
and innovative thinking and problem problem-solving. The LSDM’s MA in Design aims to enable graduates
to develop their analytical and research skills by undertaking substantial design and
evaluation projects. The MA in Design considers three main fields of practice: communication
design, interactive design and product design. Students are encouraged to develop critical
thinking and insight to improve their effectiveness as designers, while understanding the dynamic
relationships between design, industry and the commercial sector.
