About this Unit
This unit enables students to further develop their understanding of the design process within the context of project briefs that introduce areas of graphic design practice that include branding and identity and information design. Students’ understanding of a design brief, the client and a clearly defined audience will deepen. Students will be introduced to some design specific research skills, such as mood board and persona development, which will help them begin to build a toolkit of methods which they will use throughout their degree. Students will develop their design process and a greater awareness of the role of research in the generation of ideas. Students will be introduced to further lateral thinking techniques and encouraged to develop creative responses to the project briefs within appropriate constraints for both client and audience needs. Further key software will be introduced and supported by online resources and students will continue to develop their visual design skills in the fundamental areas of type, image and composition.
