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


This subject involves the conceptualisation and development of a significant design project. Students develop their studio specialisation in Fashion & Textiles, Product Design or Visual Communication and Photography. Students independently generate meaningful and innovative designed outcomes guided by their studio leaders through self-directed research and experimentation. The subject operates in connection with 85810 Research Paper A and 85812 Design Methods. In turn, this subject operates as the design studio space for generative and evaluative design work using design techniques in the creation of artefacts. These artefacts and the recorded process of their development both embody and situate theories, principles, values and strategies collectively formulated across the suite of Honours subjects. This subject and 85815 Independent Practice Project B can be thought of jointly as the Honours Project.
