How to write a graphic design dissertation

Graphic design courses are in demand in almost every country. Doing the course is probably easy for many students who are really interested in the subject. However, problems can arise when it comes to the end of the taught course, and it becomes necessary to write a graphic design dissertation.

Deciding on a topic for your graphic design dissertation

Students on graphic design courses may have a background in the humanities or in the sciences. However, at least a basic knowledge of computer programming will probably be required.

 

There are many topics that you could choose to write your graphic design dissertation on. For example, computer graduates might choose to do their research into the more technical aspects of graphic design while arts or humanities students might well prefer to consider doing research into communication and design.

Whatever topic you choose to concentrate on for your graphic design dissertation, it must be innovative and something that has not been done before. Of course, this is true for all dissertation topics.

Of course, there are many more topics that are suitable for a dissertation about graphic design.

To decide on a topic, you should think about what aspects of graphic design most interest you. Do get more ideas about possible topics, look at dissertations that have been accepted and published. Also, browse the graphic design sections in the university’s library and read contemporary journals.

If you find a really interesting article, think about how you could improve it if you conducted your own research into the general topic area. Just because a dissertation has been published, it doesn’t mean that it is perfect. Think about how you could expand on the work with your own innovative research.

  • Which graphic designer has had the most influence in the field in your opinion (in the last 10 years/since the year 2000 and so on.)
  • In what ways do graphic design and politics interact?
  • Which modern technologies most influence the field of graphic design?
  • Explain why some graphic designs inspire strong emotional feelings.
  • Explain the intricate relationship between politics and graphic design
  • What do you think the relationship is between graphic design and popular culture?
  • In your country’s culture, how have youth movements affected graphic design?
  • Explain the ways in which culture affects graphic design.

Of course, you should try to think of topics that really appeal to you, as you will be spending at least a year of your life doing your research into your chosen topic.

All dissertations basically follow the same format, whatever the subject area. This is the usual order of chapters in a dissertation.

  • The first page is the title page. This should have the title of the dissertation on it as well as your name, the name of your university and the name of your course of study.
  • The Acknowledgements come next on a separate page. You need to name all the people who helped in your research, so you should name your supervisor at least, here. You can also acknowledge family members and friends who supported your efforts.
  • The abstract comes next. Remember though, that you don’t actually have to write the sections of your dissertation in order. Most students write up the Methodology section, or the results section first.
  • After the Abstract comes the Introduction to your research study. You must give the background to your study (which country it was set in, the age of participants and so on). Readers have to understand the context of the study. They need to know, for example, if the study took place in a still-developing country or an industrialised one.

The Abstract is a summary of your research, and it is this which will make your prospective readers decide whether or not your research is of interest to them. As a general rule Abstracts are between 250 and 300 words in length.

  • The Contents page comes next, and you have to give page numbers for each section and subsection. Also, if there are illustrations, tables and so on, these should be listed with page numbers.
  • The Introduction begins your dissertation proper. You need to state your hypothesis or research question and explain why it deserves attention. Of course, you may have answered a question and then you need to state why you believed it was necessary to find a solution to the problem. Explain briefly how your research solved it.
  • The Literature Review comes next. This will probably take a long time to write as you should be reading and adding to this as you do your research. Don’t leave this section until the last moment as it is one of the most important sections. You have to position your study in the context of other studies in the graphic design literature.
  • The Methodology section is next, and this will explain the theories that underpin your research and state clearly what you did and why. Your data collection procedure should be explained here.
  • Results come next. Give the results of your study.
  • The Discussion section will be an analysis of the results. If there are any shortcomings to the research, discuss these here.
  • Your conclusion and recommendations for further research
  • Bibliography
