Design Studio

DDST001

This subject develops the students’ visual awareness and ability to communicate observations, information and ideas and understand the relationship between physical and digital and two and three dimensions. The main focus is on evolving students’ visual literacy skills and how these can be critically evaluated and applied across design disciplines. Through practical exercises undertaken in the studio, students will be exposed to basic visual elements of line, shape, colour, texture, size and space, which will be analysed both individually and in learning groups. Projects will enable the students to explore and apply the principles of design: balance, rhythms, emphasis, scale and unity.
