Chrome is designed to highlight the level of detail the methodology and the necessary execution found within the automotive industry to create and importantly communicate surface and form. Using 3D packages, coupled with Photoshop to creatively represent and accurately visualise product in an aesthetically pleasing and advantageous manner. With your designs rapidly taking shape we can work together (with limited surface problem solving if required) towards outputting high level renders and or compositions that highlight your products form, quirks and detail. Students are required to have CAD/drawings at a workable stage and will be encouraged to push themselves to communicate their ideas visually as coherently and dynamic as possible.

practicing sustainbility Critiquing of contemporary sustainability | Industrial Design Elective | Juliette Anich The world needs a design revolution, so why not become a revolutionary designer? This course will immerse you in the critical sustainability challenges of our time and equip you with the detailed knowledge required to make a positive change. Our current culture of design demands convenience and readily accepts wastefulness. However the impacts and implications of this are becoming far greater and more widespread than previously imagined. This course will review your ‘role as a designer’ in this culture and provide you with the resources and opportunities to make informed decisions on how you would like to participate in, and shape this culture. You will be asked to investigate, critically analyse and surmise issues as diverse as population, the carbon tax, food security and lifecycles of products through short writing tasks and graphic communication. The class will balance individual and collective work through two major projects; a personal design manifesto and a collaborative class demonstration of the semesters’ work. Juliette Anich will be your guide through the semester. Her current PhD studies around an alternative food system will inform, inspire and challenge you during this course.

Tuesdays 1.30-3.30 | 88.5.9
