Alongside the design module this semester I have undertaken a module purely studying the principles of typography. I have created a separate blog to show my research into this subject. francescaogtypography.tumblr.com
I have also been studying Design Management and Design Theory which is becoming quite mathematical looking at Fibonacci’s Golden section and creating patterns that can be tiled efficiently.
Design Management is my favourite module this semester- it has given me an in-depth introduction into Brand management and increased my knowledge in the protection of intellectual property. Aspects of design that are often not taught to design students but are vital especially within the competitive industry. I would like to use what I have learnt from this module next year during my placement.
