Q: How is Fashion Media Communication different from Communication Design?
Communication Design and Fashion Media Communication are relatively two different fields. Fashion Media Communication provides students with skills required for communicating fashion through various media formats such as journalism (print, electronic or new media), events and promotions, visual merchandising, styling, graphic design, display and exhibit design, advertising, public relations and creative writing in context of fashion promotion.
Whereas, Communication Design equips students with knowledge to create engaging content through two pathways. Graphic design is one pathway which develops a professional knowledge of print and digital media through branding, packaging and corporate design, book and magazine design, exhibition design, typography, etc. The second pathway, Interactive and Digital design allows students to explore the possibilities of designing with a variety of time-based media types, like moving image, animation, and sound with strong study of human behavior and interaction.

Q: How do I select the right design school for this course?
A student should definitely consider the faculty experience, employability, Industry exposure, international experience, and a fostering of entrepreneurship that is provided by an institute, before choosing a design school. On the other hand, the institute should also be forward looking and prepare its students for what’s coming next and not just what already exists. This is particularly true with communication design, where media and how it is delivered to the individual, evolves so quickly. Students must be trained for better tomorrow and should excel in a dynamic industry.
