Developing a solid foundation in graphic design is the focus of this course. It will cover the art of typography, color, composition, and other design fundamentals. Students are encouraged to use their own or existing artwork to create designs for a variety of projects-from posters, logos, catalogs and books to web branding, and more. By the end of the course students will have acquired a design skillset that will enhance their work. We will also address self-publishing and self-promotion. NOTE: This course is open to all students, including illustrators, fine artists, photographers, filmmakers and even jewelry designers, as well as others who want to acquire basic design abilities.
