This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to extend understanding and use of two-dimensional (2-D) design ideas and processes for the production of work at a professional level.

Unit details

Study level:
Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills: - originate and refine concepts for two-dimensional (2-D) designs that address a brief; - plan, develop and document effective 2-D design solutions and design processes that meet project requirements, and; - use feedback and own initiative to further develop proficiency and practice in 2-D design work. Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - explain the techniques for creating 2-D designs in the particular area of work; - describe the basic principles of 2-D design; - describe physical properties and capabilities of the range of equipment, tools and materials used for 2-D design; - explain common presentation methods for finished 2-D designs; - outline work space requirements for the production of 2-D design, including set-up of work space for particular types of 2-D work; - describe typical issues and challenges that arise in the context of making 2-D designs, and; - outline the ethical, organisational and legislative requirements associated with 2-D designs.
