PATTERN & COLOR: This project tasked students to create individual images that would be tiled to create a pattern. The project shows how small distinct images can be interpreted as texture and how scale can effect how a pattern is perceived by a viewer. The project also required the students to explore applications for their patterns.
4-YEAR BACHELOR OF ARTS
CHED ACCREDITATION: G.R. 077, SERIES OF 2015
In our Multimedia Arts Program, we equip our students with up-to-date fundamentals of effective communication design. We give them opportunities to test these theories and principles through collaboration with different programs. They are encouraged to master both traditional and digital art media to foster their development as content creators.
We have extremely hands-on and project-based courses which our students can learn the appreciation for the process of making. We encourage peer-critique—their works to be evaluated by the faculty, their fellow students, and invited creative professionals to foster a level of objectivity and an engaging learning environment.
We believe that our graduates are creative, collaborative individuals who harness their unique visions and taught skills to be competitive practitioners that are high valuable to the industry.
Under the MMA Program, students can choose to focus between three of the following concentrations:
“Design Systems,” Aia Arkoncel
This concentration focuses on developing a versatile creative professional familiar with both traditional and new media and preparing them for jobs in the marketing communications field such as advertising. Disciplines covered include graphic design, photography, video production, copywriting, applied communication and designing for web and other electronic media.
“Engkanto,” Gaby Salgado; “Gents,” Andrea Teodoro; “Likha,” Bea Trinidad; “Koi,” Vicky Tumacder
Digital Illustration & Animation
This concentration is designed to train and nurture visual storytellers and provide them with the skills to create content that can entertain, educate, influence and inspire. Senior projects include illustrated books, graphic novels, animated shorts, and graphics driven products. The program will emphasize an understanding audiences, markets and other aspects of a professional practice.
“MINT Go,” James Reli Camacho
This concentration focuses on the intersection between professional design and interactive media. It will have more technical subjects than the general Design concentration covering front end programing and prototyping for web, mobile devices and digitally enabled spaces. The program will also emphasize understanding user behavior and experience design.
