Toy Design V/VI

Toy Design V/VI
TOYD400/401

These courses are advanced level courses in which students continue in their development of conceptual, technical, and creative skills and methodologies relating to toy design. Emphasis is placed on identifying future trends and technology and integrating them into the toy design process. Students will have been exposed to the unique and different categories of toys and children’s products, and how those products are part of larger brands and entertainment properties. Corporate-sponsored projects may occur during either semester, but regardless, critiques will include visiting toy industry professionals. The students may have had the opportunity to participate in summer internships where they gained “real world” experience, and will be able to apply that learning as well as their classroom experience to design and prepare their senior show. A showcase of students' talents, senior shows are held at the end of the spring semester.
Prerequisite: TOYD300/301 Toy Design lll/lV.
