Information Design

A career in the field of information design can take you anywhere, across a broad range of industries.

Information is everywhere around us and organisations of all types need people who can design and manage mission-critical content that may need to be disseminated across a variety of media such as print, broadcast or via the web.

Our qualifications in information design will appeal to those who like to write and who value clarity in communication, whether that’s achieved purely through well-designed words, or through a combination of words and images.

When you study information design at Ara, you’ll learn about a wide range of topics including editing, type, graphic design, communication theory, user experience and knowledge management. You’ll study online with others who share your goals, learning from industry-connected tutors, and you’ll have a chance to implement your learning in a managed internship with a real client.
