Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and extend skills as a practising designer. It involves obtaining and developing conceptual and technical skills, developing an individual style in these skills and evaluating the use of these skills in own work tasks. Designers must continually refine, develop and evaluate their own conceptual and technical skills. Research, experimentation and collaboration are key factors in this process.

The unit applies to those who work as a designer, in any industry context, either independently or employed by an organisation.

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