Course Description

This course involves researching methods and ideas used in design practice. Students will be extending their digital design work which will be centered around their previous design brief. This brief looks at the complete identity and campaign of a real Design issue or context. Students will extend their ideas and techniques identified in Semester A. They will re-develop ideas through an extended, in-depth exploration of established practice. This will help to further expand and to deeply develop their ideas and visual information for their social awareness campaign.
Not all work taught will be assessed but the skills taught are essential to become skilled designers.
