This topic will introduce students to methods, tools and strategies that will enable them to analyse high-level form/aesthetics problems, with a focus on practical ideation sketching and modelling skills, within an experience-based studio environment through learning by doing. It will introduce students to basics 2D and 3D design sketching for the representation, development and communication of design concepts and form solutions, through the design process.
Students will develop knowledge of perspective drawing principles and the use of ideation sketching as a tool for creative thinking and conceptual development. There will be an introduction to basic sketching skills to develop the use of drawing as a tool for visual thinking and design development. Students will use their skills to produce a portfolio of design concepts and to create 2D perspective drawings and 3D sketch models, to communicate three dimensional products, systems and services.
