Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

- visualise form and design concepts by means of freehand sketches.

- reflect on how different levels of sketches and visualisation influence discussions in a development project.

- use different techniques for freehand sketches and describe their advantages and disadvantages.

- describe how digital techniques can be used for sketching and visualisation.

Course disposition

There are unfortunately no shortcuts to become proficient in sketching, so the majority of the course consists of individual exercises. Exercises in different sketching techniques take place every week. Both quantity and quality are of great importance, as is the student's documentation of and reflection on the exercises. After each review students work individually during the week with exercises that are completed with as seminar discussions during the following week.

Invited professionals will share techniques and tips.
