Today's art directors are multitasking. In this course students will hone art direction skills from conception, production, collaboration, execution, and all the steps in between. Their vision will be brought to life and a stellar portfolio will be built to advance their careers. Throughout the semester industry professionals (photographers, fashion designers, creative directors, etc.) will join us to offer an inside look at the business, share their experiences and provide feedback on student work. This course is open to students from all creative areas; assignments require some editorial design skills. In addition to other course-related assignments, students will present mood boards for their ideas, design three layouts for editorial stories, and produce and shoot an editorial story. PREREQUISITE: A working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
