"Design is thinking made visual." - Saul Bass
"A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Let's face it, we live in a world that has become more and more visual.
Which means we have ample space for the new generation creative thinkers and problem solvers. Our world had shifted into a sphere where we can change our reality with a visual. So, let's make it a powerful one.
Do you have more than one creative interest?
We use design as a means of communication and the work produced embodies the individual's ideologies, philosophies and methodologies. With your diverse views and FADA's focus on a range of design methods, processes and techniques, you will create professional communication designs, such as advertising campaigns, posters, books, magazines, corporate identity programmes, packaging, apps and websites, both individually and as members of creative teams.
Apply design thinking intelligently and the result is life-enhancing.
