Studio Art 250. Graphic Design I
Graphic Design I is the first of a two course, year-long exploration of design as communication. Students will learn the basic principles and practice of graphic design with an emphasis on the creative problem-solving process necessary to produce successful design solutions. The student will be challenged to reach original design solutions after arriving at an understanding of both traditional and modern approaches to typography and design layout. There is required computer graphics lab component to this class that will focus on technical know-how as students learn to navigate computer graphics programs and apply what they learn to their course projects.
