Product Design at West Derby School

Course description

This course has been designed to encourage students to take a broad view of design and technology, to develop their capacity to design and make products and to appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing.

Students with an interest in Product Design will possess an enquiring mind, be able to think creatively and be prepared to challenge expectations. They will be encouraged to intervene and improve the quality of life by solving problems. Throughout the course they will learn how to design and create three dimensional products, models and working prototypes.

To achieve this, they will combine practical skills with an understanding of creativity, aesthetics, cultural, social, economic and environmental issues. Design studies will focus on the work of past designers, design movements of the 20th Century and contemporary design.
