Design and Visual Communication Level 1
Teacher in Charge: Mr Slaney
Design and Visual Communication 101
This course works through the vehicle of the design process. Students will work on a formative design brief in the first term, developing skills in freehand sketching, isometric drawing and orthographic drawing. An investigation into a well-known designer will help to influence ideas for the brief.
In terms two and three, another brief will build on the skills acquired in term one. Students will work with more accuracy and precision as well as showing a fuller understanding of the design process. The final term should be tidying up the required drawings for the externally assessed standards.
Design briefs used successfully in the past have included ‘design a trophy for a chosen sport’ and ‘design a homework station/desk’
