Imagine new worlds with Massey's Bachelor of Design with Honours (Concept Design).
Learn how to design concepts for entertainment and education within film, animation, television, gaming, and location-based experiences.
Concept design is about visualizing and developing the ideas behind film, television, gaming, performance, products, and interactive experiences.
In the Bachelor of Design with Honours (Concept Design), you’ll use traditional and contemporary art forms to communicate your concepts for new objects, characters or environments.
This could include drawing and sculpting 3D models and making digital plans and renders.
You could be designing characters, creatures, props, vehicles, and machines, all the way to building entire worlds to form the foundations of feature films, theme parks, events, toys, or exhibits.
Concept design is one of the first stages in every design process.
Concept designers create the basis for further production and development, rather than finished products.
Note: Students starting in July may complete in 3.5 years, provided they complete Summer School in the first year.

3_ Portfolio entry
When you apply online, submit a portfolio showing a selection of your creative work that demonstrates your creative potential with your application to study.
