Introduction to Graphic Design (Spring 2014)
Design and Digital Media
Graphic design is everywhere. Graphic design is the combination of image and type used to convey a message while also considering formal elements and visual impact. In this class, students will delve into design and gain an in-depth understanding of the potential for targeted communication in today's multimedia society.
Hands-on, in-class exercises, and real world, structured assignments will immerse students in the elements of graphic design, including: Typography; layout; color; graphic form; and positive and negative space. Through detailed projects, exposure to current examples and contemporary practices, and experimentation with materials, students will immerse themselves in the creative process of graphic design. Some preliminary work will involve sketches done by hand, but final compositions will be created using the Adobe Creative Suite. / Each student will have access throughout the class to a lab workstation equipped with the latest software. / Facilities fee of $40 in addition to tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.
