CUVDES03A Apply the design process to 3-dimensional work in response to a brief


1. Examine information on three dimensional design

2. Apply design processes to produce samples of three dimensional design work

Learning Outcomes

• general knowledge of the role and nature of a brief within the design process, including different types of brief and how designers use them
• awareness of the notion of individual interpretation and choice within the design process
• knowledge about the materials, tools and equipment required to apply design processes to three dimensional applications
• workspace organisation and maintenance including environmental and safety issues
• knowledge about how other artists and designers have produced work in three dimensions
• awareness of the relationship between form and space
• copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation, and their impact on aspects of design
• literacy skills sufficient to interpret a brief
• numeracy skills sufficient to calculate quantities and determine construction issues

Overview of Assessment

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:
