Graphic Design Essentials with Adobe Creative Cloud
Instructor: 
Price: 
$806.00

This class introduces individuals with little or no design background to the graphic design practice. Students work both on and off the computer to complete assignments that explore basic 2D communication principles integrating color, shape, texture, typography, and photography to build a visual language. Essential skills in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator that support the task of each assignment will be taught through weekly tutorials. Students will develop an understanding of the stages of the design process (research, ideation, sketching, etc.), and project outcomes include collages, patterns, posters, and a logo. At the end of the class, students will be guided through the process of sequencing and presenting a digital portfolio of their designs. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies here. / This course is included in MCAD's Design Foundations certificate.

How does an online course work at MCAD?
Most online courses are asynchronous, meaning that there are no set class meeting times. Instead, courses are project-based, with 2 to 3 deadlines per week, and students can choose a time and place that works best for them to complete the work. Course activities may include readings; video demonstrations and tutorials; online discussions; projects; and critiques. The workload of a 1 credit course is roughly 8-10 hours per week, whether the course is being taken for credit or noncredit.

Required Textbook: See the MCAD Art Cellar and Bookstore for a list of required textbooks.
