Decisions about a products design are taken with increasing haste and with fewer opportunities for review, comparison and evaluation. In this environment designers need high level design appreciation and decision making skills. The skills to read, evaluate and direct design were previously developed by being part of a design team in industry which fewer students are likely to experience upon graduating. RMIT industrial design students have benefited greatly from the experience of automotive designer Bernie Walsh and his capacity to provide expert tuition and meaningful feedback. The Wacom tablets and Sketchbook Pro software have facilitated a focus on design, not technique. Concept sketches by Ryan Fonceca.
