SummaryThis course will take the project developed during Interior Design 4A & 4B and design and build a personal degree show exhibition for it. It will also give students experience in applying for jobs and the associated professional material associated with the process.
Course description This course involves students designing a degree show for their self-generated project as developed in Interior Design 4A & 4B. They will be required to edit and curate their research and design work and present to a professional level their final scheme. This should be done in the context of a year group degree show, with each student responsible for their own presentation, but agreeing as a group the basic format of display.

They should produce images that show their Interior Design proposals in a realistic manner, to complement the final scheme. Students will also be expected to design and produce a bound design book that details the entire project journey, edited from all information gathered and produced. They will also be required to produce a CV, sample letter of application and mini-portfolio. To support an understanding of the job application process a mock interview will be undertaken.
