Graphic design is everywhere. From t-shirts to posters, traffic signs to logos, graphic design is used to visually communicate an idea, a message, or a statement. Students in this class will explore graphic design as a practice and learn to put to work the concepts and principles of design.
Typography gives form to ideas, organizes information and heightens expression. It can have real-world life-or-death consequences, such as highway signage, or can simply entertain us, as do film credits. In this fast-paced class, students will explore the multiple ways that type can be used.
