Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to interpret and creatively respond to a design brief through the production of work.

It applies to individuals working in any industry or design context where work is prescribed by a commissioning agent/client in a brief. Individuals are required to integrate the creative, communication and planning processes that support effective response to a design brief.

Work is carried out independently, although guidance is available if required.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
