MA in what?

I have to agree with Hugh here, just for a change.

I can just about understand the concept of Communication Design but not the other way around.....

You'd probably get more responses if you created a web survey at Survey monkey or something...

Communication Design is about designing effective ways of communicating with people, such as forms which - typically - are poorly designed.

I used to hate Landmann Way when I went there. Always some excuse to be turned away - i.e. your Council Tax bill was slightly out of date or there was some reason for it being closed (despite saying it is open basically all the time on the Council website).

Quite agree about the restricteveness of Landmann way Anon.; though some of my neighbours seem to have found an ingenious way round going there at all. They deposit their large household stuff (including that banned from L.W. like plasterboard)across the road from their houses and the Council collects it all in a lorry at least once a week.Ssimpell.

Still no explanation of Design Communication?

As opposed to Communication Design Anon I did know what that was.

Poor old JR. I wonder if he lived in the conservation area? Seemed the type but I could never imagine him enjoying a slice of artisan brie.

Still, he would've loved Amazon.
