LEVEL 3 DESIGN 3DES   

What is this course about? In Level 3 Design we will be looking at the historic evolution of Design as well as contemporary practice. We will  develop our understanding of how meaning is created and communicated through design, and how this meaning  is often politically charged. Design processes we will be using will range from very hands on drawing and collage  based through to completely digital workflows.   Two achievement standards are offered along with the opportunity to submit work for the level 4 scholarship  examination. Students will create a zine on a self selected topic before creating further work that can be assessed  against additional internal standards and will become part of the external folio submission. This work involves  showing knowledge of the characteristics and constraints of established processes and methods in established  design practice.  

What sorts of things will I do? You will keep a visual journal to document your critical creative and technical decision making as well as your  exploratory research.​ ​You will create a zine to extend your understanding of visual communication using analogue  and digital skills, You will go through an iterative design process to complete a minimum of six briefs for the folio  board external. One or two internals may be assessed from within this body of work. You will develop your skills  using the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite and analogue processes.
