L2 Graphics (Design & Visual Communication)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

Students learn through spatial (architectural) and product design projects. Creativity is encouraged through a selection of stimulating and relevant design contexts. High quality presentation and drawing skills are expected. Students will use design language to articulate the exploration and refinement of their ideas.

Students will develop their learning of:

  • Freehand sketching
  • Research skills
  • Instrumental drawing including mechanical perspective
  • Digital modelling and production of drawings using software such as Sketchup and Solidworks

The portfolio of work produced will form a substantial component of students’ university applications and may also help in obtaining employment within the design industry. Careers in Graphics include: Textiles Design, Graphic Communication, Landscape Architecture, Web Design, Industrial Design, Product Design, Fashion Design, Interior Design, Spatial Design, Advertising, Building, Digital Media and Photographic Design. It is also ideal preparation for Architecture and Engineering.

This course will be assessed to a selection of L2 Design & Visual Communication Achievement Standards. Assessment is a combination of both internally and externally assessed standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 23 credits at L2. Graphics is an approved domain subject and is appropriate for students intending to study at university.
