Tips on how to apply to BA (Hons) Design for Branded Spaces


We are interdisciplinary, and one of the,
something that’s really distinctive about the course and has attracted a lot
of applicants is the fact that we are not confined. So three qualities that we
will be looking for in our applicants would be creativity, curiosity and
enthusiasm. So in our portfolio we would have quite a broad range of interests,
the main thing would be for to demonstrate an interest in working with
spaces. So although we wouldn’t build necessary
spaces from scratch, we transform them, we may build or design installations, so
working within a three dimensional context is very important to have that
kind of interest. An interest as well in what’s happening in design, culture,
branded spaces of course but in general kind of very broad in terms of
commercial brands and cultural brands as well. So in terms of skills in our
portfolio we would like to see of course an ability to draw, draw in 3D but not
necessarily just drawing by looking at something, but drawing as a thinking tool.
We would prefer to see a little bit of development work alongside the final
pieces for the portfolio. Other interest may be good as well, some people for
example have some very strong interest in photography, that is really
interesting because it contextualises their practice. And in terms of software,
we teach all the software from scratch so some people will come in with some
knowledge of some software which is fine, but if people don’t have any knowledge
that’s fine too, we can start from scratch. We have a very hands-on approach
to teaching and learning so the students do lot of things in the studio they work
on their projects but also we have workshops to teach certain design
methods for example, and it’s very vibrant community we can go out to
exhibitions, visit spaces so experience first hand what it’s like to be in the
experiential world of design for branded spaces.
