FORUMS
They consist of an introductory talk from a VCAA Reviewer
or Curriculum Advisor addressing the School-Assessed
Task using examples from Top Designs exhibited works,
folios and design plans. This is followed by a presentation
by an industry professional, who represents best practice
within their particular field of design. The Forum allows
time for Q&A, students are encouraged to prepare questions
for the speakers. Students then visit the Top Designs exhibition.

'doodle-
bombing'
where she draws over the covers of influential publications such as
Interview and Vogue.

DESIGN INFLUENCES

MONDRIAN AND HIS
CONTINUING INFLUENCE

The refinement of Mondrian's abstractions
had an immense impact on the
development of modern art, both while
he was still alive as well as after his
death. His work was immediately
referenced by the Bauhaus, particularly
in the simplified lines and colours of the
school's aesthetic, as well as its ideal in
which the arts could bring concord to all
aspects of life. Later on, Mondrian's style
can be seen in the developments of the
Minimalists of the late 1960s, who also
opted for reduced forms and a pared
down palette. Not only influential within
modern art, Mondrian's far-reaching
impact can be seen across all aspects of
modern and postmodern culture.

DESIGN

11 THINGS THAT INFLUENCE
YOUR DESIGNS

If you and I are each given a design
problem to solve, our solutions will
inevitably be different. Our solutions may
share many common characteristics. We
may choose to use the same font. We
may end up with a similar color scheme
or even similar imagery. Our solutions
though will not be exactly the same.
They couldn’t be. There is no single
solution to a design problem.

Start an Idea, The Tools We Use, Our
Life Experience, Knowledge of Design

Skills, Strengths and Weaknesses as a
