This subject was previously known as Interior Architecture Marketing (Practice) Strategies.

This subject explores and articulates the design student's transition from university life to post university life as a design practitioner. Students work with experienced and specialist practitioners to investigate and trial platforms and strategies appropriate to branding and marketing themselves as designers, their existing body of work, and their emerging practice trajectories. Students are introduced to various strategies, techniques and media platforms relevant to developing their professional profile. In the production of their folios, and the development of their own profiles, students are encouraged to understand their design practice in the broader local, national and international context of design practice. The contemporary concept and practice of trans-disciplinary where people work creatively across disciplines and in new modes of innovation, is also explored.
