Design Process 2


Design Process 2 will develop and deepen students' knowledge of design from Design Process 1. Students will explore and communicate the design process though research, design contextualisation and idea generation. Freehand sketching and rendering for design will be a focus in this module. Students will be challenged to design and produce presentation layouts that communicate their design proposals. Assignments undertaken in Design Process 2 will be closely aligned with the module Projects 2. Assignments in this module will take account of subjects that students will be teaching at both Junior and Senior Cycles. Students will be encouraged to deepen their knowledge of Eco Design and the Circular Economy at all stages of their learning in Design Process 2.
