Within the Media and Information Design degree programme (short MIND), the main focus lies on digital interactive media. When choosing the Media and Information Design programme, you'll be focussing on designing relevant and effective visual communication of information.



Within the Media and Information Design degree programme, the main focus lies on digital interactive media. The focus is on designing relevant and effective visual communication of information. Our students learn to visually represent complex content, expose interrelationships and underlying patterns, clarify differences and similarities, and reveal things or trends that are invisible.

Before visually shaping a message, its content and context are thoroughly examined: they are observed, recorded and documented from different perspectives, read and interpreted, measured and compared, reorganized. Subsequently, a strong storyline and an adequate graphic and/or typographic imagery are sought that optimally expresses the message or gives the reader/viewer an optimal insight into the content (interface). Well-considered aesthetic choices largely determine the quality and appeal of the end result. Projects result in stimulating communicative end results, in the shape of interactive (web) applications, animations, data visualisations, multimedia installations, performances, data sculptures, books, magazines, posters, etc. The MIND programme is situated at the crossroads of media, information design, art and technology.
