DYB111 Create and Represent: Form

This unit introduces you to the foundational visualisation skills and applications needed to formulate design propositions such as sketching, technical drawing, simple physical and digital model-making, rendering, composition and presentation. Visualisation is a crucial part of design thinking. The ability to use appropriate techniques and media to communicate design ideas is a vital part of the design process. Designers need to conceptualise and communicate two dimensional/three dimensional forms and spatial qualities. Therefore it is important for designers to learn how to imagine, visualise and communicate these ideas effectively. The unit is paired with DYB113 Create and Represent: Materials as part of the foundation block in the first year of study that will enable you to acquire the preliminary skills required for design communication in the Spatial Study Areas. These skills will be progressively applied throughout your course.
