UTS Visual Communication

Here at UTS VisCom, on Gadigal land, we believe that design can change the world. Look around. We live in a world of images, text, media and devices. A world designed. The future we face is one of challenge and possibility. How we design that future will shape the coming century. Here at UTS, we believe that a better world is still possible, a world of social equity, environmental sensitivity, inspiration, beauty. And we want you, here at UTS, to help design it.
