Member Profile

Bilgi University's School of Communication Design also includes VCD, which was established in 1997 as one of Turkey's first Visual Communication Design education programs. In the last few years, the school has focused its attention on developing communication in progressive, effective and capable ways through design studies and practices in various mediums and environments. These mediums and environments must be processed and shaped with an analytical and creative mind-set, so that they will be inspiring, interesting, understandable, informative, motivational and accessible to various viewers, users and participants. Our mission in communication design is to study communication in its broadest context through brainstorming, scriptualizing, information systems, visualizations, 3-D modelling, simulations, and project-based learning/teaching methods. We expect our students, who will shape the communication design concepts, media, typographies, graphics, visuals, interactions, space and time of the future, to participate actively in these processes with our academic staff. Highly competitive student works are presented both through year-end annual exhibits to national admirers and also find a chance to reach out to new audience by participating in international venues, as in the case of our exhibits at Outdoor Vision Festival 2012 in Santa Fe (USA) or at Ars Electronica 2005 in Linz (Austria). Driven by the ideal of design excellence, the department adopts a global understanding of design, while setting its standards, and accordingly is involved in international collaborations, projects, student and instructor exchange programmes through its membership of several international associations.
