This course builds on the technical and conceptual skills developed in Level 2 Design and will further student expertise in this field. At this level students will be expected to choose their own themes, and study the work of contemporary designers to generate their own unique body of work.
Experimental technical skills with digital media are fostered as students explore a wide range of thematic ideas. Although print-based media is the most common area of study, illustration, animation and moving digital media are additional avenues for exploration linked to this course. Divergent conceptual thinking is encouraged and an eye for detail and precision is essential for success. There is a large external assessment component to this course which will require students to submit three portfolio panels of original work or a moving image portfolio.
This is a valuable subject for those students interested in studying Art, Design or Architecture at a Tertiary level.
