What will I learn?
You will learn to use a variety of media and a range of skills and methods for expressing your creative ideas.

Product Design focuses on the design of products, services and systems that will benefit individuals and society as a whole. Products can be tangible, three-dimensional manufactured objects such as consumer products, furniture, packaging, sports equipment, or can be product interfaces and product related systems and services.

Spatial Design focuses on the design of spaces. Such spaces can be defined by four walls, but equally they might radiate outwards with few physical boundaries and change with time. In Spatial Design we aim to creatively question the conventions of architecture, interior, landscape, event, performance and urbanism.
