Toy Design III/IV

Toy Design III/IV
TOYD300/301

In these courses, students will expand on and apply principles they have learned in Toy Design I and II to create original toys that can be expanded to become a toy brand with line extensions. Students will utilize analog and digital drawing skills, technology including digital design software for rapid prototyping, and explore methods of fabrication using a variety of materials. Students will learn the most effective methods of presenting their toy concepts visually, demonstrating new features digitally when it is the most effective way of communicating play patterns and function. Corporate sponsored projects may occur during either semester, but regardless, critiques will include visiting toy industry professionals.
Prerequisite: TOYD200/201 Toy Design l/ll.
