Introduction to graphic design through visual problem-solving for the purpose of communication. Studio projects emphasize the development of visual ideas and include the study of letter forms (typography), basic design techniques and graphic design principles. The use of the computer is introduced along with graphic design software. This technology is combined with more traditional (hands-on) studio experience for the initial stages of design and conceptual development. Studio and computer lab work are integral to this course.
Additional course fee: $135.
