Today’s field of industrial design engineering has broadened its scope: disciplines as systems design, service design, process design, strategic design, interaction design and many more are included. Almost every product is nowadays part of an interactive system in which all the parts and stakeholders must be considered. For such levels of complexity and abstraction, the power of visualization becomes even more evident. It allows the designer to discover and express relationships, progressions, emotions, experiences; depict stories, scenarios and various other intangible aspects involved in the system. Visual communication is therefore one of the most powerful competences of the 21st century designer.
Throughout the curriculum, IDE’s design drawing staff members teach courses and course modules in collaboration with several departments. The line of visual communication courses builds on the drawing fundamentals, and ranges from data visualization to process sketching and storyboarding.
