Designed Environments and Graphic Design

Designed Environments introduces students to several forms of architecture and environmental design including building design, landscape architecture and interior design. Students learn the fundamentals of architectural design through technical hand and computer drawing, the design process and presentation formats including model making.

Designed Environments can be studied as a minor or major at both Tertiary and Accredited levels.

Graphic Design encourages students to develop their graphic communication and design skills in order to understand and create real world products. Using the design process, Adobe software and printing processes, students will produce a variety of items including magazines, t-shirts, packaging, websites, posters, pamphlets, logos, book covers and folios.

Throughout this course, four individual units can be studied as either Tertiary or Accredited, allowing students to complete a minor or major. Graphic Design can also be combined with Designed Environments to achieve a major-minor or double major in Design and Graphics.

There is also a unit of Negotiated Study available to students in Semester 2 of Year 12, which produces a professional portfolio of all work undertaken in the course that students can use to apply for courses at university or CIT/TAFE.
