Course Description

This unit of competency is delivered in the class Design and Drawing 1.

This design course delivers the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to take a design concept or solution to the implementation stage and then to the final stage
Students will develop software skills in After Effects and Indesign. Many of the Software tutorials will be delivered online. The course will have a strong emphasis on creativity, and developing conceptual skills related
to good design practice. The Assessment tasks are based on the course competencies, student will need to complete all the required assessments in order to pass. Students will require a visual diary for this course.

This unit is co-delivered with Create Digital Visual Effects CUFANM402A, and assessed independently.
