Student Perspective

In Visual Communication Design this semester, we completed a range of different types of sketches and projects on the desktop MAC computers.  One of my favourite parts of the semester was to be able to creatively brainstorm different rooms to design for a client. I recommend this subject for anyone who enjoys creative and technical drawings, working under restrictions and computer skills. – Stephanie 2017

Students Perspective

During VCD we do activities which include the use of design elements and principles, these develop our creativity and design skills. We also learn how to draw different perspectives. We also briefly use Photoshop and Illustrator. This subject also involves learning to draw structures isometrically and orthogonally, which can be challenging initially. We also cover aspects of architectural designing, a very interesting and beneficial area, where we learn to draw floor plans. – Cloe 2017
