Design and Digital Media

This class will focus on the mechanical operations of a Digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera, and with those skills, learn how to best formulate projects and assignments for high school students. 

The photographic medium is seemingly redefined every year. Digital photography has become an inescapable reality in terms of artistic practice and personal documentation. Though the endless streams of technical jargon can be intimidating, the medium remains, at its core, the manipulation of light.

This class will provide a hands-on experience with digital storytelling and video production that will include pre-production, interviewing techniques, voice-over narration, lighting, sound, and editing resulting in a personal short video story. 

Stories shape our culture and define who we are and motion pictures (film and video) are more prevalent today than ever before. Digital video can be an effective medium for collecting, delivering, and sharing stories.

A visual identity is more than nice‐looking words on business cards or a website; an effective visual identity can tell a story about a business's working methods and core values. Done correctly, a strong visual identity should be part of a larger communications strategy for getting clients, sales, connections and exposure. This six‐week class will take students through the process of revising a brand and identity, or starting one from scratch.

It's one thing to make a message legible—clear to another person and beautifully typeset (meaning how the letters have been arranged)—but quite another to render that message so that it has emotional and aesthetic qualities. The ability to do so is grounded in a thorough understanding of the history of typography. In this class, students will learn how to do just that. They will explore the development of typography and then apply what they've discovered to an engaging series of assignments and projects.
