Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The course shall give a deeper knowledge in designing industrial made products, by doing own experiment and study how other designers have gone about it. The ability of using different visualizing techniques in 2D and 3D are the most important ingredients.
The student will after completed course;

  • being able to develop the ability to create and visualize in 2D and 3D, pictures and models by using various visualization techniques.
  • increased the ability of versatility in using different ideas.
  • have in depth knowledge about form and color theory
  • developed the capability of independently analyzing form and gained the basic knowledge how to create an artistic formula.
  • show a reflective approach towards the variations of aesthetic expressions.
  • being able to analyze and judge the quality of the design.

Course content

Sketching, views, free hand perspectives. Preparation of pictures for presentations. Models. Theory of the visual language. Form theory and design aesthetics. Chromatics and principles of color composition. Product semantics. Studies, analysis and experiments with form and color synthesis. Analysis of industrial design products. Historic examples of style and design. Graphic design.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures and seminars treat important parts of the course. Though the most important parts are tutorials and individual or group based work. During the course vocal, written and visual presentation of results. Laboratory tutorials treating aspects of form and visualization techniques. The greater parts of the course is focusing on developments of ideas and variations on designs.
The course runs over the entire spring semester.
