Creative Direction & Styling
Creative Direction & Styling examines the creation of visual identities through image, installation, events and media using an interdisciplinary approach. Students work with challenging projects across a variety of commercial design fields. Students learn how to design and convey messages which reflect contemporary ideals to target audiences and meet clients’ needs. Further, they develop skills to explore and create projects in areas such as digital imaging, interior design, publication design, visual merchandising, food and lifestyle, fashion and beauty, campaign creation and events management.
Fashion Design examines the relationship between clothing and the body in a range of contexts, and challenges students to create original and innovative garments and accessories. Fashion courses promote the use of diverse and socially viable materials, and develop communication skills and illustration styles to support students’ understanding of the commercial realities of the fashion industry and its networks. Whitehouse fashion students enact research methodologies for design and business decision making processes which resonate with contemporary ideals and issues, set in an interdisciplinary learning environment.
Interior Design examines spatial interaction in commercial, residential and corporate environments. Students engage with the research and creative decision making, knowledge of materials, products and processes essential to meaning making through spatial design. Developing skills in socially responsible design and experimentation, students create dynamic living, working and commercial spaces as sensate environments for a range of specialist audiences and target markets. Interior students undertake furniture and object design, colour and lighting schemes, and communication and business strategies whilst working with appropriate standards and regulation.
