There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



The development of a visual language for the communication of design ideas and solutions to others is integral to the design process. This subject introduces students to a number of techniques and conventions that reflect the changing nature of communication in design. The ability to rapidly create ideation drawings allows the designer to investigate, develop and reflect on their ideas in a concrete way. The understanding of the conventional language of two-dimensional engineering drawing provides the essential information for products to be understood and produced by others. Life drawing forms the third component of this subject, where the communication of form and silhouette are further developed. Here, the relationships between environments, objects and people are explored as they are key to gaining an understanding of how to design products in a human-centred way.
