L2 Design & Visual Communication

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss K. Hills

This course is structured around spatial and product design briefs where students will design through drawings, 3D models and computer software to create, develop and express their own design ideas. The students experience the modern world of manufacturing using computer programs like Sketchup, ArchiCad and Solidworks to produce scale models of their work on a laser cutter or 3D printer.

Students who enjoy problem-solving, being creative and developing drawing skills would enjoy this subject. If you are interested in the way people choose and use products and spaces, this would be a good choice for you.
