We move on to incorporate advanced features using layers, masks, paths, colorizing and duo tones.

The course finishes with applying these basic techniques to design issues of logo and type.
Note: During this period of remote learning, access to a computer or other digital device is essential for attending lectures, demonstrations and critiques. Students who are taking courses in digital media must have access to a computer, and will be asked to purchase a student license to the Adobe Suite. Tufts is making these licenses available at a greatly reduced price. Adobe software is not only essential for your courses, but is essential to almost any design or illustration practice. By purchasing this software, you will be able to access it on your own computer at your convenience. Instructions on purchasing and downloading the software will be sent to you before classes begin.
