With a focus on the integration of design elements and how they are created, chosen, and organized, this intensive course explores the potential of graphic design. For each project, students will explore the relationships between typography, language, image, and symbolism. Throughout the course, emphasis will shift between idea generation, design theory, and technical skills. Lectures will address graphic design, letterform history, typography, and creativity. The course accommodates beginners and more advanced students who are building a portfolio. Level: beginner-intermediate.
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
