Module Overview

How do we formulate ideas into the design process? How do we creatively solve design problems? This module introduces students to basic art and design rules applied in design. Students will also learn skills essential to record and express their concepts and idea, and experience design critique and consultation during the module. In addition, it also introduces students to the design methodologies used by designers through a variety of design activities. Students must use their own initiative to solve design problems.
