Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Corkery

Students will learn about the design process and how to apply this process to a range of design tasks, including illustration, graphic design, package design, typographic layout and the use of computers as a design tool 

The aim of this course is to provide students with a thorough grounding in Design, which involves understanding a design brief, how to carry out research, generating ideas and developing these ideas in a systematic way, through to a final solution

Drawing plays a major part in this course as the central means of generating ideas. Drawing is carried out by hand in conventional ways and also by using a computer.

This course leads to Level 3 Design and Visual Arts. It will also support entry to Level 3 Painting and Photography with HoD approval
