More than classroom learning with Sunway’s Department of Art and Design

Sunway University’s Diploma in Graphic and Multimedia Design and Diploma in Interior Design students were recently thrilled to exercise creativity beyond their classroom during a Visual Research Trip to Kuala Terengganu. The trip organised by Sunway University’s Department of Art and Design (DAD) required students to design a ‘new’ resort while integrating different expertise for interior design and incorporating a corporate identity design for the new resort. Students were also encouraged to identify surfaces, materials, structure, dynamics, shapes, and space among other things that might influence their perception of learning.

Syaza Abdur Rahman expressed how fortunate it was for her and her peers to be given a chance to learn outside the classroom and stay in a 5-star resort in Terengganu. She said, “It felt great to be able to work with an Interior Design student as I feel we’ve obtained a taste of what is to come when we enter the working environment. There were many inspiring things in Terengganu, especially the local handicrafts there. The unique wood carvings, the songket and batik were absolutely beautiful to look at.”
