By the end of this course, you should be able to:

 

  • Characterise the design process and describe how each stage requires different skills and attitudes
  • Describe how conceptual design differs from detailed design and the consequences of these differences for how design is carried out
  • Use techniques for understanding the underlying need behind a client brief
  • Describe a model for idea generation and use this to lead a design team through the creative process
  • Understand the relationship between modelling, testing and the design brief, and use this to establish an effective iterative design process
