You usually have a chance to design your own space in a second part of the question.


Fashion design


This topic has come up in two of the last ten years, most recently in 2016. The question came with an illustration and a statement on fashion. Students were invited to discuss the statement under the following headings: design concepts, colour, shape and pattern.


A second part to the question asked students to come up with their own ideas for wearable fashion based on a theme.


One-off questions


One-off questions can be asked from time to time on almost any aspect of design. Visual merchandising, shop fronts, stage sets, crafts and other topics have come up over the years. They rely on your knowledge of basic design principles to offer an answer.
