PAPER 2
GRADE 12 
NSC EXAMS
PAST PAPERS AND MEMOS NOVEMBER 2018

INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION 

  1.  This question paper consists of TWO sections:
    TOPIC 1: The examination sourcebook/workbook (50 marks)
    TOPIC 2: The final practical examination product (50 marks)
    TOTAL: 100 marks 
  2. The question paper has TWO briefs/themes. Choose ONE or COMBINE  THE TWO OPTIONS.

QUESTIONS 

BRIEF/THEME 1: PLANET EARTH 
1 KIUHUYAD

The one thing we all share is PLANET EARTH. – Wendell Berry 
We are greeted by Mother Earth's unique and magnificent beauty every day. 
2 JUHGUYAD
The planet Earth no longer appears as a mysterious and unexplored system. Over  millions of years humanity has slowly exploited and plundered the planet of its natural  resources. Much of our planet now suffers from a wide range of environmental issues. 
3 KJHJUAD
The rapid rate of change on the planet Earth is forcing us to take a new look at the  world and our place within it. The millennials (children born in the early 2000s) of today  yearn for a pre-industrial, pre-technological world.  
Key issues need to be addressed urgently.  
We need to help the next generation of scientists, biologists and designers to find  solutions to the issues confronting our planet.
4 UJYGUYGAD
The illustrations above emphasise man in partnership with the planet rather than being  in charge. Humankind should respect their place in this symbiotic, biodiverse  ecosystem so that it remains habitable for future humanity. 
Stephan Hawking, world-renowned theoretical physicist, believed the following: 
Within the next thousand years or so, man will make the planet Earth uninhabitable  and in a billion years from now the Earth will be a very hot, dry and uninhabitable  planet. One way or another, our planet will likely become uninhabitable for mankind in  the future. We need to start thinking seriously about how we will free ourselves from  the constraints of this dying planet.

THE BRIEF/THEME: 
Create an original environmental and/or social design solution based on PLANET  EARTH that creates an awareness of the vulnerable beauty that surrounds us. 
Use one or more of the design categories below for your design solution.

  • VISUAL COMMUNICATION/INFORMATION DESIGN AND/OR DIGITAL DESIGN
    Create awareness of our efforts to save/destroy the planet Earth. Use a billboard,  poster, website design, brochure, sticker, book illustration, animation, packaging  design, graffiti, etc.
  • SURFACE DESIGN AND TWO-DIMENSIONAL CRAFT DESIGN
    Interpret the theme Planet Earth by focusing on inside and outside surfaces, such  as upholstery, mosaic designs, wallpaper, carpets and wall finishes. Your design  solutions should focus on creating an awareness of the vulnerable beauty that  surrounds us. 
  • PRODUCT DESIGN AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL CRAFT DESIGN
    Products should be designed to inform people about sustainability and the use of  environmentally friendly materials: lights, chairs, shelving, cushions, shoes,  furniture, crockery, jewellery, clothing, etc. They can also be a celebration of the  beauty of the Earth. 
  • ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
    To help the next generation of scientists and biologists restore the world, we need  to reduce our carbon footprint and create designs that do not pollute or negatively  affect the ecosystem or our health. For example, design an eco-friendly  environmental model that deals with health: a hospital, a retreat; education: an  eco-school; interactive museum and/or green architectural spaces: a green wall or  turf-roof building, penthouse gardens, etc.

BRIEF/THEME 2: UNCONVENTIONAL DESIGN 
10 KJHGUYGUYAD
Restraints caused by the economic recession and environmental crisis have  contributed to the rethinking of design, design products and processes. Perhaps now,  at a time of deep economic anxiety and trouble, we should embrace  UNCONVENTIONAL DESIGN trends as they bring life, creativity, entrepreneurship  and beauty through the use of alternative, unconventional materials. 
From a business perspective the use of unconventional, recyclable and upcycled  materials and construction methods can produce possibilities to create and develop  new, innovative, exciting design products and offer more entrepreneurial  opportunities. 
11 JKHGUYHG
Unconventional design encourages recycling and upcycling, which are common  creative solutions used in impoverished areas. 
Note the innovative use of cardboard boxes, plastic crates, plastic and glass bottles, and wooden pallets in the images below. 
12 UYGUYAD
THE BRIEF/THEME: 
Create a design in one or more of the design categories below that interpret the theme  UNCONVENTIONAL DESIGN in an original and creative manner. 
Use one or more of the design categories below for your design solution. 

  • VISUAL COMMUNICATION/INFORMATION DESIGN AND/OR DIGITAL DESIGN
    The focus could be on the branding for an unconventional shop/business, e.g.  a logo, letterhead, posters, website design, brochure and promotional items; unconventional or avant-garde ways of communicating a message through the use  of original typography, innovative processes, materials and images in presenting  creative design solutions.
  • SURFACE DESIGN AND TWO-DIMENSIONAL CRAFT DESIGN
    You can choose to create wallpaper, textiles, mosaics, upholstery, curtaining and  cladding of floors, ceilings and walls with unconventional materials or techniques.
  • PRODUCT DESIGN AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL CRAFT DESIGN
    Design any unconventional product, e.g. unusual or eccentric cushions, lights,  chairs, shelving, shoes, furniture, crockery, jewellery, lamps, clothing, handbags  and accessories. Carefully consider your choice of materials. 
  • ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
    You may consider creating an actual pop-up shop or display space. Think about  the use of natural and/or artificial light to highlight your exhibition space and  products. Be innovative with the use of materials, consider the use of recycled and  upcycled materials, such as cardboard, plastic, tin, wooden pallets and second hand shipping containers. Do not underestimate the creative possibilities of  flat-packed cardboard boxes as building material. You can create a model for an  unusual public space, e.g. a park, a piazza, an airport and waterfront.

REQUIREMENTS 
SECTION A 
TOPIC 1: THE DESIGN PROCESS [50] 

  1.  All processIpreparatory work for your design must be shown in a  sourcebook/workbook. 
  2.  This will involve the processes from conceptualisation to realisation. 
  3. Thorough investigation of problems posed by the design brief should be  shown. 
  4.  The sourcebook/workbook must be presented in the form of an album (that is  in book form). 
  5.  It must open easily and have pages that turn easily. 
  6. The sourcebook/workbook must be made of a light material to facilitate  transport where work is moderated at a central venue. 
  7.  Ensure that the sourcebook/workbook is presented professionally.

  • Evidence of detailed planning and presentation related to the final concept (30)  [50]

SECTION B 
TOPIC 2: THE FINAL PRODUCT [50] 
Although it is recommended that a two-dimensional design should NOT be larger than  A2 in size, candidates' work is not restricted regarding size. 
The size of a three-dimensional design will depend on the function of the object being  made. Take into account that the final product might have to be transported to a central  marking venue. 
NOTE: 

  • Your teacher may NOT assist you in any way during the final production of the  design.  
  • ALL work must be done under the teacher's and the appointed invigilator's  supervision at your school.
