The main purpose of Unit 1 is to enable students to develop an understanding of instrumental drawing methods and freehand drawing including drawing from direct observation. The unit also introduces students to the diversity of visual communication and the role of the design process in visual communication production.
As well as referring to the Study Design (particularly pages 12-16 and 43-46), have a look at the following web pages
methods of gathering and organising information about the communication need methods of generating ideas such as - discussion - group interaction - using existing examples of visual communication
the purpose of the production of visual communication such as - the need/s of the client - the need/s of the audience/s
- materials - methods - media - final presentations used to make visual communications
- design elements - design principles used to make visual communications that satisfy the stated purpose
procedures and techniques for evaluating and testing ideas for possible visual communication solutions
the cyclical nature of the design process
Although care has been taken in preparing the information contained on these webpages, EDUCATION GRAPHICS does not and cannot guarantee the accuracy thereof. Teachers and students should ALWAYS be guided by the Visual Communication and Design VCE Study Design, and other relevant material such as the VCAA Bulletin, published by the Victorial Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
