The goals of the Design ATAR course are to facilitate a deeper understanding of how design works, and how ideas, beliefs, values, attitudes, messages and information are effectively communicated to specific audiences with specific intentions or purposes via visual media forms. This course aims to achieve these goals by exposing students to a variety of communication forms and a thorough exploration of design.
Design projects allow students to demonstrate their skills and understandings of design principles and processes, to analyse problems and possibilities, and to devise innovative strategies within the design context of Photography. In this course, students develop a competitive edge for current and future industry and employment markets. This course also emphasises the scope of design in professional and trade-based industries allowing students to maximise vocational and/or university pathways.
