Interior Design Module Two Online Short Course

Course description

Upon completion of the online Introduction to Interior Design Parts 1 and 2, join us on Interior Design Module Two online, to hone your analytical design skills and develop your own personal interior design methodology. Module Two will focus on designing for a commercial interior space.

During the course, you'll be encouraged to study independently, using design references while you work to improve your digital drawing skills. We'll also explore further 3D digital presentation techniques using Sketch-Up, as well as looking at effective lighting design and detail drawing for joinery construction.

Please note that this course requires dedication; students should therefore allow time to work on their design project outside of the class.
