During this project you will develop a variety of skills such as team building and people skills when communicating with the client. During the design process you will develop skills such as sketching, critical thinking and site research as we develop the project. We will then move on to the production and finalisation of the project which will develop skills such as graphic design, Software skills and model making.
These skills will be developed during the project as we engage with the client and the design process.
