Subject Description

The aim of this subject is to encourage students to utilise graphic making alternatives to digital and computer based image making.

 

Content

Students often rely on the computer to realise graphic ideas, especially in graphic and multimedia design, Graphic Construction provides students with a range of image making alternatives to digital graphic making. Encouraging the innovative and experimental use of materials, image accumulation, pattern and mark making and rendering, students will primarily produce one-off or minimum run work. However, students will also investigate ways of re-incorporating hand-made graphics back into their computer-based design practices.
