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


The subject aims to define and clarify the student's position as a designer. It focuses on guiding students in establishing a unique point of view on design in a broader cultural context, and gives them a range of tools to communicate this point of view in different contexts and across different media. This can include different kinds of design drawing, photography, media training, copy writing, presentation and performance skills, understanding the needs of different audiences, forming networks, establishing a work ethic, tools of persuasion, business acumen, switch on confidence and personal design leadership. The objective is to provide the student with a series of structured opportunities to develop practical skills in these areas and provide a range of tools to facilitate establishing an identity and role in a community of practice.
