Graphics helps students to acquire the visual and design thinking skills used in fields of design such as Architecture, Engineering, Industrial Design and Spatial Design.
The course has two main areas of learning:
DESIGN: We aim to develop students’ ability to be innovative by developing creativity and critical thinking. Students work on design projects based in fields such as Architecture, Product Design and Graphic Design.
VISUAL COMMUNICATION: students learn to use a range of visual techniques to develop design ideas. These include sketching, instrumental drawing, CAD, modelling and computer graphics applications. Students learn how to visually communicate the details of their ideas to others.
Students will complete four projects during the year including:
Lake House Design (Architectural design): Where students use inspiration from a famous architect to assist their own design ideas for a lake house.
Architecture Presentation: Where students learn to create final images and models of their architectural design.
Water Bottle Design (Product design): Where students design an elegant water bottle for a particular context.
Design Presentation: Where students use CAD and Graphics software to prepare a presentation of their design work.
