Level 2 Photography & Design

L2PHD
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Chuck

What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on typography (styles of lettering), logos, photography and design techniques using Adobe Photoshop and Indesign to bring these ideas together in practice. Students create logos, posters, and promotional materials (letterheads, business cards, tickets), which are relevant in creative industries and business/marketing. They will produce two panel boards of your own design work, develop understanding of the visual elements in photography, e.g. line, shape, colour, balance and contrast, produce images related to a chosen theme, and develop design skills in Photoshop and InDesign to layout images, design logos, tickets, business cards, posters and brochures.

Please note that homework is an essential part of Photography & Design as photos usually need to be taken at home. Also, it is very useful for students to have their own camera as resources are limited.

NOTE: There are both Design achievement standards and Photography achievement standards on offer in this course.

Submitting Internal Assessment
Students must hand in their work to the teacher by the specified due date. If any work is missing or not handed in, they will receive a non-achieved, unless they supply a medical note and notify the teacher or HoLA (Mrs Chuck) beforehand.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in student work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available. Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
