Product Design: A course in first principles by Elivio Bonollo

11.30 am Wednesday 21 July 2010

Join the Vice Chancellor of the University of Canberra, Stephen Parker as he launches this book by one of Australia’s leading industrial design educators, Elivio Bonollo

Bonollo has been instrumental in establishing industrial design in Australia and overseas through his teaching posts at the University of Canberra, Monash University, RMIT, National University of Singapore and Ubon Rajathanee University, Thailand.

Product Design: A course in first principles highlights the connection between design and quality of life and the important role it will play in the future of mankind.

The book is a new approach to teaching and learning product design from an industrial design perspective. It is essentially a step-by-step design learning program that has been developed for students of varying educational levels.

The beauty of Bonollo’s approach is that it brings structured learning to aspiring designers whilst being mindful of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Each part of this book encourages self-expression, self-confidence and exploration: it is has been carefully designed to take you on a highly motivating journey of design thinking and creativity, supported by excellent sample solutions to design problems, lucid discussions and extensive references.
