About this Unit
In this year-long unit students will develop a self-directed project from proposal to production, in consultation with an academic supervisor. The first semester involves engaging in background research to facilitate creative development. Students will build a field survey of their topic area identifying precedents and contexts, leading to experimentation and exploration of a range of potential options and addressing any arising issues, to develop a sound proof of concept. In the second semester students will develop the work to a finished outcome, through an iterative process of prototyping, reflection and analysis. It is expected that there will be a consistent and documented developmental process undertaken across the year, resulting in the final work, which will be a professional level outcome, realised in a specific discipline field within Visual Communication. Students are expected to be self-motivated, and work as an independent professional practitioners, throughout the major design project work.
