Avans University

Two parties realize the Avans partnership in the VIVID network;
  • Communication & Multimedia Design (Academy of Media & User Experience) 
  • AKV|St.Joost, school for Fine Art and Design.

Communication & Multimedia Design (CMD Breda) brings communication, design and technology together.
In this interlinking of multimedia and communication disciplines, CMD students are required to adopt a generalist approach and gain an overview of the entire cycle. CMD students can be deployed as art & technology specialists, in each phase of the development cycle for new (digital) media, from concept to analysis and design to implementation. ‘New media’ includes innovative communication solutions such as serious games and simulations, smart objects (objects incorporating an invisible computer), interfaces, experimental marketing campaigns and interactive installations.  
CMD focuses on three projects within the VIVID network: Visualizing information, Way-finding in public space and Product and services innovation Lab.  Website
