About this Unit
Critical Thought in Design provides students with an understanding of the process designers use to structure their thinking and communicate ideas with clients, target audiences, other designers and specialists. The ability to think critically, creatively and independently is essential for success as a designer in generating and communicating innovative design solutions that meet the needs of the client and target audience. The aim of this unit is to provide students with the skills and techniques necessary to become an independent thinker able to research, analyse, argue and communicate effectively with clients. The unit examines a wide range of critical thinking and design, problem-solving methods including problem definition techniques, idea generation, brainstorming, as well as evaluation and analysis skills.
