This course will develop the previous success of Level 2 Design and Visual Communication and will enable students to display their creativity and ingenuity through completing a selection of challenging design briefs. These design opportunities will encourage students to explore areas that better demonstrate their skills and thinking.

This is an essential step for any student wishing to pursue this subject at tertiary level or as a possible career pathway.
