This studio presents a series of exercises that introduce students to basic elements and principles of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design. Form and visual languages are approached from various points of view to encourage innovation and creativity. Design process, composition and communication skills are learned through exploration of diverse materials and techniques. The design process is experienced as an iterative practice of thinking, drawing and making.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Explore and apply the elements and principles of design to develop compositions in 2 and 3 dimensions;

2. Identify and utilise basic design principles and creative processes; and

3. Communicate design solutions and ideas effectively using design terminology and a variety of presentation techniques and materials.
