The Illustration Animation course at Kingston University has an enviable reputation for producing some of the best practitioners in their subject areas.
The course combines two essentially narrative subjects to make a diverse, exciting and demanding studio based experience. Illustration is prominent in many current forms of communication media, from advertising and design, newspaper and magazine editorials, through to children’s publishing and graphic narratives.
It is increasingly essential to e-readers, interactive and game applications linking into the discipline of animation. Animation takes the image into time and audio media and is enjoying global popularity.
At Kingston we combine the teaching and development of real thinking and observation skills with an open and innovative exploration of communication forms including developing digital platforms.
Our students and graduates are equally as successful in Animation awards as Illustration prizes and commissions. The breadth and achievement of current students and alumini reflect the ambition, scope and potential of illustration and animation as a hybrid territory which is really only just beginning to be explored.
Why choose this course?
This course is designed to develop highly individual approaches to the creation of communicative images for print, and interactive and moving image. Students from this degree have consistently produced internationally recognised, award-winning illustration and animation.
