UNIT 1
Visual communication

OUTCOME 3
Design Elements and Design
Principles

Focus on the experimentation, exploration and
application of design elements and principles
through
(1) manual freehand drawing
(2) the use of information and communications
     technology
(3) where appropriate, other methods of electronic
     image generation such as photography and
     photocopying

The use and application of  Information and Communications
Technology (ICT) such as computer-based learning,
multimedia and the World Wide Web is an integral component
of this Outcome



ASSESSMENT TASK
A folio of visual communications that use design
elements and principles to satisfy stated purpose/s


You will need to demonstrate the ability to:

        use a range of design elements and principles
        in the development of manual freehand drawings

        
use information and communications technology to

explore design elements and principles
             -
explore, where appropriate, other methods of
               electronic image generation such as
               - photography
               - photocopying

        
use design elements and principles to produce
        visual communications that satisfy a stated purpose

        
generate and develop design alternatives using
        a range of design elements and principles

        
select and refine a design solution to suit a
        stated purpose
