Some of the major concepts that will be addressed are Proximity, Alignment, Repetition, Contrast, Color and Type. There will also be accompanying projects that apply those concepts. Furthermore, there will be an emphasis on software skills. All students will have experience using software packages (Adobe CC) to perform pixel image editing, vector image development, and print development. 8+ Classes

Introduction to Graphic Design
Students learn to create and evaluate graphic design through proper use and understanding of communication and design theory, idea generation and design techniques, terminology, and technology.

Typographic Foundations (new course in 2015)
This entry-level course introduces students to basic design theories and skills for creating professional typographic works. Students create a variety of exercises to better understand design.

Students also “translate” one project into an interactive book either through Adobe DPS or utilizing the Interative PDF settings. Students ultimately prepare their resume and portfolio in order to pursue an internship. 17 classes, 2 tutorials

Graphic Design History
An overview of the last 150 years of Western Graphic Design. The cyclical nature of design styles is examined. Theories of design are compared.
