WHAT DAVID’S TUTOR SAYS…

“David’s has been selected because of his consistent development throughout his FdA interior design degree course, which has ‘showcased’ throughout his final module submission. The overall quality of his presentation is of a very high standard with experimentation of 3D visualisation and 2D rendering capabilities.

This month David has been awarded for for his Furniture and Furnishings Project for the final module of his Foundation Degree (FdA) in Interior Design: 3D Visual (2)

He has demonstrated his ability to reflect brand identity and the importance of effective research to specify the target market and apply this to his design solutions effectively. Branding can be seen throughout his presentation, which creates consistency and fluidity to all aspects of the project, whether this is technical drawings, presentation boards or 3D visuals of his design work.

Evidence of development work has also been well considered and supported his final module, which is particularly important at degree level. This has enabled him to analyse and inform his design decisions made, which is ultimately reflected on the final designs produced.
