    Syllabus

    This unit explores the different modes of visual communication used in illustrating design ideas. It introduces students to the psychology of seeing and covers the perceptual and cognitive process of thought and aesthetic enquiry. The unique language of visual literacy will be explored, with an emphasis on creative thinking.
    Students will also be introduced to key techniques in composite representation, technical drawing, elementary 3D modelling, and colour/material application.
    Students will undertake a series of exercises and research tasks to develop their visual communications skills and techniques.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

    1. Discuss approaches to visual spatial literacy, critical thinking and representation of design intent;

    2. Define key principles of composition and of visual communication; and

    3. Identify the primary techniques used for illustration, modelling and visual presentation.
