Idea development and basic design methodology
- Freehand drawing and sketching as a method for idea generation and visualized thought process.
- Methodology related to idea generation and dissemination of process; from brainstorming to processed sketch or presentation drawing.
- Basic model building as a method for generating ideas and developing form.
Visualization and drawing techniques
- Theory and exercises in sketching and freehand drawing
- Introduction to perspective drawing, analytical freehand drawing of three-dimensional shapes.
- Introduction to 2D digital techniques and software for visualization.
- Introduction to basic model building based on own sketches and drawings.
- Investigation of character and characteristics in objects through sketch techniques.
- Drawing as an aid and method in the analysis of the structure of the objects.
- Differentiation between idea sketches, concept sketches and processed sketches versus presentation drawing.
- Variation in drawing techniques and material use related to the chosen method.
- Terminology related to the description and evaluation of one's own and others' work.
Visualization with color
- Theory and exercises in color with an emphasis on color relationships and color systematics, based on basic color theory.
- Color as a physical, physiological and chemical phenomenon.

- has skills in freehand drawing and sketching techniques which involve knowledge of various digital and analogue drawing tools and drawing techniques
- can use specialist terminology in communicating own work, and in evaluating the work of others.can justify the choice of colors based on theory and experience-based knowledge and put this in context with product semantics
- can use colors to emphasize and support an idea in a design process.can evaluate and discuss the meaning of color for a product, and transfer this insight to product semantics
- can apply professional knowledge and theory to practical issues and make reasoned choices based on reflection and an objective approach
- can convey central subject matter such as theories, problems and solutions both in writing, orally and through relevant visual forms of expression
- can exchange views and experiences with others with a background in the subject area and through this contribute to the development of good practice.knows basic methods within new thinking and innovation
- can find, assess and refer to information and subject matter and present this in such a way that it illuminates a problem in an objective way
Learning methods and activities
Lectures, individual exercises under guidance, group assignments, oral reviews, written and visual submissions.
- Obligatory assignment
Further on evaluation
Obligatory assignments given formative assessment; graded pass or fail. Assignments must be graded pass to be able to take the final exam; a project work. One project work submitted digitally to Inspera. If fail: New project work must be submitted the next time the course is run. If the obligatory assignments are graded to fail the candidate must take the course anew.
