Graphics / Design & Visual Communciation

In Graphics/Design & Visual Communication, students solve problems related to the main areas of study: Spatial (Architectural and Landscape design) and Product Design. Visual communication (drawing and modelling) is a key element of the course, and through this, students can respond imaginatively and appropriately to a range of set briefs. Informal drawing such as sketching allows students to explore and express their ideas imaginatively. Formal drawing involves the use of instruments and the application of standards and conventions.


Design and Visual Communication requires students to have an inquiring mind and a willingness to support their visual work with written explanations, justifying their decision making. As their confidence and experience grows, students take more responsibility for their own learning.
