This two day course helps experienced designers take their conceptual design skills to the next level.

There will be a focus on understanding client needs, generating and iteratively developing  ideas, effective decision-making in design, and managing design teams.

Learning outcomes

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

  • 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 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
  • Understand the nature of subjective decision-making in design
  • Describe strategies for building an effective design team
