Course programme

Look beyond logo design and develop a fundamental understanding of the principles of visual identity on this short, online course. You will learn how to establish an identity across a variety of applications and broaden your perspective on the possibilities of style, format, and medium. We’ll take an in-depth look at the core ideas surrounding visual identity, discuss the importance of research and of building a strong conceptual foundation, and explore how visual elements like form, colour palette, and imagery all work together to tell a brand's unique story.

The course features a series of practical assignments which will take you through the stages of creating a visual identity and will help you to develop your visual vocabulary in context. You'll complete work between classes and then present and discuss it with the group. You’ll be able to exchange ideas and feedback with the other students both during and after each class, through our online classroom and forum.

By the end of the course you will understand and use elements of visual identity with confidence.

This course will be taught over University of the Arts London's online platform. Each session time is UK time (please check your local time when you book). To find out more about how online courses are taught please visit our dedicated Online Courses page.
