This subject imparts directed theoretical and practical knowledge of the elementary principles and theories of two-dimensional design. The major emphasis of the subject is on studio-based spatial and material design processes and the primary critical importance of design practice as it relates to all visual disciplines. Students will be introduced to, and begin to develop an understanding of, the dynamic application of the abstract visual language of design and the formal and conceptual structure of design that is determined by human perceptions shaped by psychological, physiological and biological functions. Close consideration is given to design conventions by selectively engaging analog and digital technologies, framed within the social, political, economic and technological contexts that shape design needs and the changing patterns of communication in the contemporary world.
