Curious about graphic design? Want to try your hand at it? In this hands-on, overview class, we’ll explore the nuts and bolts that drive graphic design. Through the study of typography, design concepts, and how to approach a design problem, you’ll learn about visual communication, creating and finessing a design, and working with the creative process with a final product in mind. We’ll work on specific, real world assignments, and will view and discuss a variety of professional work samples. We’ll work in Illustrator and InDesign. Suggested for those without graphics program experience: Getting Started with Illustrator & Indesign. Please bring a flash drive to save your work.
