L3 Graphics (Design & Visual Communication)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

Students learn through architectural, product and media 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 apply their learning from previous years to solve complex design issues.

This will include the use of:

  • Freehand sketching
  • Research Skills
  • Instrumental drawing
  • 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.

It is also ideal preparation for Architecture and Engineering.
