Product and Form I + II

The topics of the course belong to the fundamentals of design capability. The course gives the students an opportunity to focus on form and aesthetics and deepen their skills. They learn to master a reflective process of visual design and build personal repertoire of visual precedents. The course gives the students advanced skills in form giving and the aesthetical design of physical industrial products. The course addresses a critical viewpoint of understanding dominant aesthetic conceptions and ways of perceiving products, design and form. Individual design processes and form giving is reflected against these perceptions. Students get to experiment with and perfect their skills with a range of visual manual and digital design tools and methods such as mood boarding, sketching, design drawing and computer aided design tools. They become competent with contemporary techniques in design visualisation and they learn to justify their solutions visually and verbally.
The focus of the course is mainly on design concept development and communicating developed concept further with the help of visual media such as sketching, drawing and rendered images.
