SHAPE 2020 Digital Seminars: Visual Communication with Chris Gaul

Duration: 50 minutes
16 March 2021, 10am Video Conference

Join designer and artist Chris Gaul to examine how to communicate ideas visually through the design portfolio. This is a practical skills session that will give learners some hints and tips on how to best communicate their ideas and showcase their work for their intended audience.

Chris Gaul is the founder of Parallel Lines visual design studio and teaches at the UTS School of Design. Chris’ work looks to create moments of contemplation and curiosity in everyday life, encouraging exploration and discovery.

This session is aimed at young designers and makers in Year 12 as part of Shape 2020 Digital Seminars, developed in partnership with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and the Powerhouse Museum. This year, teachers and learners will have the opportunity to choose from three seminar packages. Each package will include on demand and livestream sessions. Recordings of the livestreams will also be made available online as part of the Shape packages. Schools can purchase packages from Monday 15 March 2021 via the NESA website.

Young designers and their teachers are invited to submit questions for our expert designers. Please email learn@maas.museum with your question in advance, including your name and school.

Schools can also book a self-directed visit to see the Shape display.
