Successful completion of 3D design Process

Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to work proactively with a client or commissioning organisation to develop and negotiate a design brief.
It applies to individuals working in any industry or design context where the designer plays a key role in determining the scope and nature of work required. Establishment, negotiation and refinement of a design brief requires the integration of highly-developed creative thinking, communication and planning skills in a process that may not be linear. Adaptability and effective responses to change and new ideas are crucial.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication
