We are surrounded by design. Everywhere we look we see things that have been designed, but do we really know what makes "good design"? What makes something aesthetically pleasing?

Why do some designs work better than others? How do I achieve balance?

What's this symmetry and asymmetrical style that people talk about?

This hands on 3D design class will help you discover the fundamental elements of design; where to start when 'coming up' with a design and how to develop your initial concept further.

This short class forms part of our 'Good Design' program, and it is recommended that colour theory be taken also to round out your skills when designing. You do not need to be able to draw to participate in this workshop.
