The focus of the programme is to develop design skills from the basis of a sketchbook, utilising CAD, alongside manual techniques, while developing an understanding and planning of three-dimensional spaces for a specific user group.
Throughout the HNC you will learn to creatively interpret a design brief and communicate your vision in both visual and oral form. A blended approach to learning and teaching may continue during which you will discuss, develop and create design proposals from challenging design briefs. This will include at least one full day in the studio environment, online classes and independent study.
With tutor guidance, you are encouraged to critically evaluate your own and others work, share ideas and ultimately design spaces that will create a positive experience for the user. Creativity is developed through the design process via a broad range of dynamic commercial design projects, live projects, collaborations, and competitions.
Working alongside tutors with many years of professional industry experience in the commercial sector, some of whom are currently running established design practices, you may be offered the opportunity to undertake live projects, competitions and study trips to locations such as Berlin, Malta, and Barcelona.
