Visual Communication Design Research Group within the Department of Media focuses on graphic design and visual communication research in societies and media. It was founded in 2010 when the Department of Media was established by emerging three units: Graphic Design, Media Lab and Photography.

Research topics of the doctoral candidates include visual culture and narratives, information design, emerging practices and techniques in creative industries. These topics are investigated from the sites of design processes and production, media artefacts and their reception in societies.
