Price: 
$840.00

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 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. / Students will have access to Adobe Creative Cloud software throughout the course. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
