<ul><li><p>An example of a Design sheet for A3: Design</p></li><li><p>For this assignment you are required to research, develop and illustrate a design based </p><p>on a chosen theme. Your final design will be done on A2 (size) paper and should </p><p>include at least 3 view points (elevations) and include annotations that fully explain </p><p>your design.</p><p>Read the task instructions below carefully and use the audio instructions and icon links </p><p>on the assignment page for more help.</p><p>Task 1: Research</p><p> You need to start this assignment by doing some research on your possible areas </p><p>of chosen design. Areas of design to choose from are:</p><p> Product Design</p><p> Fashion Design</p><p> Building (architecture)</p><p> Interior Design</p><p> Furniture Design</p><p> Garden Design</p><p> Select more than one theme for your work so that you have a back-up plan for </p><p>your work.</p><p> Find images and information to help you plan for your own design, print out all </p><p>your research and make notes in your sketchbook.</p></li><li><p>Task 2: Planning</p><p> For this task you need to illustrate your thinking about your chosen design ideas </p><p>by making a mind-map/ bubble chart. There is a link to a free mind-mapping </p><p>tool on the assignment page (use the link icon).</p><p> Use the following structure to get start your mind-map:</p><p> Draw your own Mind-map in your sketchbook that illustrates your own initial </p><p>thoughts for your design. Add more cells (bubbles) to extend the mind-map </p><p>that will explain your initial thoughts in detail.</p></li><li><p>Task 3: Illustrate your initial ideas.</p><p> For this task you are to use one full sketchbook page to illustrate each (3) of your </p><p>initial ideas.</p><p> Add the date and title (A3: Design - Idea 1,2 or 3)</p><p> Divide each page into four equal sections as shown in the example below:</p><p> In each of the sections draw your design using different view-points (elevations).</p><p> Add annotations (labels) that explain your design and elevation (view-point).</p><p> Add colour using coloured pencils to the design and background.</p></li><li><p>Task 4: Development of your final (chosen) idea.</p><p> Choose ONE of your initial ideas/ designs for your final design.</p><p> Using a full page in your sketchbook create a pactise design sheet of your design </p><p>using at least 3 alternative elevations (view-points).</p><p> Add annotations and colour to your work.</p><p> You may need to rotate your sketchbook page to 'Landscape format' for this </p><p>task.</p><p> This task should be completed to your best standard as you will use this to help </p><p>you work on your main (large) design sheet.</p></li><li><p>Task 5: Main Design</p><p> Collect a sheet of A2 (size) paper and set up your design sheet by adding a </p><p>border. Make the border approximately 1-2 cm in thickness and use a ruler.</p><p> Add your title inside the top border - A3: Design - My design sheet/ include the </p><p>name of your design.</p><p> Add your name and form in the bottom border.</p><p> Using a very light pencil line divide your design sheet into the relevant number </p><p>of sections (one for each of your elevations/ drawings).</p><p> You need to illustrate your final design using at least 3 alternative elevations </p><p>(view-points). Use your previous sketchbook work to help you with this. </p><p>Remember to increase the scale/ size of your drawings to suit the larger sized </p><p>paper. Your elevations should fill the sections you have made.</p><p> Using water colour paints add colour to your work. Begin by adding colour to </p><p>the background first!</p><p> Use the colour effectively by using a range on tones and shades that make your </p><p>designs appear 3D and realistic.</p><p> Add full annotations/ explanations for each of your elevations. Use a black ink </p><p>pen (not biro) so that your text is clear. You may also want to consider typing up </p><p>your annotations and then printing these out to stick on to your work too!</p></li><li><p>Submitting a sample of your work for assessment:</p><p> When your work is complete, take a digital photo of it and submit this picture </p><p>into your markbook by using the link on the assignment page called: SUBMIT </p><p>WORK.</p><p> Check that your picture can be viewed correctly and that it is clear. If it needs to </p><p>be rotated then rotate it before your submit it.</p><p> Listen to the audio instructions for more help and guidance on this.</p><p> If you need to use a camera from school please ask, you can also use the school </p><p>computers in the ICT rooms (lunch) or the library if needed.</p></li></ul>
