Some of you may have read that I was scheduled to take a Colour Theory course with Maria Killam (Colour me Happy) as instructor. Unfortunately because enrolment in the spring semester was lower then normal, the course was cancelled. I was definitely disappointed but plan to enrol in the course when it’s offered next fall!!
But good news!! After a little telephone tag I finally connected with the Program Assistant for VCC’s Interior Design Program I discovered that there was another course that I could apply my credited fees to - Design Basics: An introduction to the field of Interior Design.
I’m excited to be taking this course!
My first day was last Thursday… and my first assignment: to define design.
I actually have to formally “present” my definition and I’ve started to pull together some visuals and physical materials (papers & fabric representing form, contrast, texture, pattern, colour), I’ve done some research and taken a few pages of notes (gotta pair it down!), and I’m going to try some sketches for my presentation (that’s a scary thing for me ‘cause I can’t draw!)… maybe a floor plan or two to represent space-planning, scale and flow… hmmm…
As I’ve been brainstorming and researching I found myself wondering how my blogger friends would define design. So… I’m passing this challenge on to each of you… I hope you’ll respond! :-)
How would you Define Design?
