Aims and objectives

This unit seeks to introduce students to the fundamentals of visual design. It aims to facilitate the exploration of fundamental visual design elements, principles and practice, providing students with a foundation for further communication design-based projects. Using image, type and meaning, students explore different methods to graphically represent their environment, including objects and place.

1. Engage with research, design process methods and models relevant to design enquiry;
2. Document and organise design research, concept and design development to then develop design proposals;
3. Critically evaluate and reflect on design process and project outcomes;
4. Develop hand crafted graphics and typography to create project outcomes;
5. Implement highly developed project outcomes using appropriate computer software applications.
