Architecture + Product - Design and Visualization
About the Course:
Architecture + Product, Design + Visualisation
Design Jewellery, Packages, Architecture Models with digital design applications
This course explores various digital design applications and technology to define the role of information expression in product identification, presentation, and production. This decal looks at applications of digital design in architectural and product-design practice on building information modeling and visual presentation. Students will learn to adapting illustration, design, material to three-dimensional forms to reach marketing objectives, structural integrity and display aesthetic.
Two main projects will be assigned either to individual or group. Depending on the section, the special emphasis on the project design will vary. There will be 2 reviews and final presentation, in the form of GALA.
Grades are determined by progress and completion of semester projects. Final grade is based on the three percentages: 10% for in-class participation, 40% for mid-semester project, 50% for final project. Grades are determined by judging 5 different categories: Legibility, Style, Creativity, Innovation, and Composition. To receive a passing grade for this course, students must complete both semester projects and receive higher than 70%.
How to Enroll:
For each section, enrollment is limited to 30 students, split evenly between upper and lower divisions- so the total enrollment for this class is 60 students. Two sections have different design emphasis:
1) Architecture/Digital designs 2) Product/Packaging design
