Graphic Designers as innovative leaders!


Graphic Design at Murdoch University is focused on big thinking. Explore the world’s problems by using the latest in design thinking and AI to make sense of the complexity of client's issues by looking at relationships, structures and broader issues.

Although our course is based on the traditions and best-industry practices, we are not afraid to innovate; we will change the Graphic Design industry, take advantage of advances in tech like AI and UX and transform the world along the way.

You will be the next generation of design innovators ready to take on this fast-paced, ever-evolving global design industry and make the world a better place.


Global minds, local solutions

Graphic Design students take on big challenges like traveling to Indonesia and working with local fisherman to solve sustainable fishing issues. Or travel to Singapore and work with the Salvation Army to address service issues with their second-hand stores.

Locally, Graphic Design students worked collaboratively with the town of Collie to look at ways to sustain the local tourism and economy when the Muja power station closes down.
