Course lessons focus on the creative design process. What is design, how should you show your potential in the application portfolio and the homework assignments? What technical and ideation methods you should know in order to produce solid and interesting design concepts, that also communicate your personality and motivation. All times are in Helsinki Time EET (Eastern European Time)

Group starts Mon 30.10.2023, EET

1. Creative exploration

How to show your creativity? The finished items often hide the process behind them and the process is actually where the designer’s work happens. To show your potential one should learn to explore the design process. In this lesson we talk more about how and why you should do that.

2. Sketching and Ideation

Designers' work happens before the final product is realized. Ideation processes and ability to sketch, organize and visualize one's ideas is important. This lesson will open up why, when and how you should sketch and how it helps you to develop your design concepts forward.

3. Concept Design

Design visualizations should always have a background idea: a product/marketing/design concept. A strong concept helps you to communicate your idea with a clear focus. In this lesson you will learn how to create interesting and coherent concepts that have layers and great attention value which is supported with the chosen visual style.

4. Visual Concept and Identity

A great visual identity draws ideas from the design concept. Final visuality must communicate the ideas and support the message behind the concept. This lesson will walk you through the visual design process and give you tools to create outstanding and coherent visual presentations.

5. Prototyping

This lesson takes a look at different prototyping and scale modeling techniques through examples, providing tips and tricks for different materials and mediums. Creating great models adds valuable information to your designs and makes you stand out from your fellow applicants!

6. Portfolio examples

This lesson shows examples and analyses of successful portfolios from different design fields. The same portfolio does not work for all purposes. You should always tweak your content to fit the purpose. Learn from the examples and start ideating your own portfolio!
