The Foundation Degree in Design for Commercial Interiors will introduce you to a range of technical knowledge combined with your creativity in order to produce design ideas that challenge contemporary design. Unique to the course is its focus on the diverse retail and leisure industries allowing you to showcase relevant and engaging retail interior designs with the wider social and leisure spaces associated with great retail centres. This may be in the form of retail locations (high street stores, malls, shopping centres, boutique stores and department stores), leisure spaces (bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels) or public spaces.

This is a creative discipline that will encourage you to expand the boundaries of current design thinking to create new experiences and relationships between technology, people, space and places. As you develop, you will be encouraged and supported to explore your own personal design style, in order to push boundaries and take creative risks whilst considering the wider consequences of your design choices.

You will be encouraged to develop an individual and unique approach to design, which will allow you to question the function and visual potential of our interior environments. The journey will explore historical and contemporary design in order to influence you in creating thought out and functional concepts.

Live and competition briefs are important to the delivery of the course and will engage you in realistic work experience scenarios. You will build an awareness of digital technology and how it may underpin design concepts in order to create contemporary spaces that engages with the emerging digital society we now occupy. The embedding of digital media will allow you to explore and manipulate the tone, mood and function of contemporary commercial interiors.
