This is a remote, home-studio intensive course where students study the power of graphic design and experiment with fundamental principles and practices in image-making, typography, and visual composition through project-based assignments.
Our work together will focus on both hand-work using art materials and digital design with Adobe Creative Cloud Express, a user-friendly and powerful web-based computer software application. Students also have the option of setting their own learning goals for engaging with the Adobe Creative Cloud design applications, including InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. All students will be given remote access to an Adobe Creative Cloud license while enrolled.
To participate in this remote-learning course, students will need access to a laptop or desktop computer with a multi-core processor and minimum 8GB RAM, digital camera (phone camera is fine), access to the internet, and a flat working surface.
We will use the course site Canvas and meet on Zoom. Synchronous participation in the four hours of class is required, and students can expect to spend an additional 3-4 hours per week completing assignments. Students successfully completing the requirements for this course will earn 4 credits in Graphic Design: Fundamental Principles and Practices.
