FACULTY OF POST GRADUATE & ADVANCED DIPLOMA PROGRAMME IN DESIGN

INTRODUCTION

Design is the activity of turning a ‘need’ into a solution, a 'concept' into a reality. In a design process, the designer combines variables such as usability, aesthetics and sustainability into a product that fits the beliefs, emotions, and wishes of the consumer and at the same time is producible and saleable. Design is all about optimisation and alignment of technology, context, product, production and market.
The two year post graduate level of Design programmes offered by ARCH expects a degree of maturity from learners and assumes that they have had a chance to figure out & understand the ‘needs’ of 'others'.
If you choose to become creators, you will need to have done this, but unfortunately this is not the case, most of the time. We stop seeing. We stop believing. We become hard & opinionated. It is through an ‘Unlearning’ process that we make the space for further learning, evolving into aware, sensitive individuals capable of seeing needs, and generating effective solutions to them. The ARCH programmes are designed to support, guide, and nurture such growth.
Learners will understand how to produce creative solutions to design and communication projects and how to prepare work for presentation to a client, as well as for production. Live briefs from industry are implemented where possible so that learners have an understanding of the relationship between the client, designer and producer/manufacturer as well as the eventual user/ consumer.
Establishing individuality in generating concepts and developing design ideas is fundamental to successfully achieving required outcomes in the programmes.
Learners are therefore encouraged to develop initiatives and perception through debate and mutual learning and analysing and evaluating their own discoveries towards developing personal expression, creative potential and personalised creative solutions & style.
