Creating dynamic design solutions for editorial assignments is the goal of this course. Using shape, pattern, line and mass, students will learn how to create tension in their drawings, from close-up to panoramic views. With the classroom as background, students will draw one another and incorporate design elements for a unified composition. The combining of various design elements will be emphasized in order to create balanced compositions for page layout: multi-column, vertical, horizontal, double-page spreads. Some design exercises will be based on prominent graphic design styles of the early 20th century, such as Art Deco, Suprematism, and De Stijl, as well as Dada artists and the geometric designs of the Bauhaus. How to work with a confined space and effects of cropping an image will be addressed, and attention will be given to balancing image with text, and typographic choices. Throughout the course, we will work toward gaining confidence to achieve creative solutions that communicate. Students may work in their medium of choice, in black-and-white and/or color.
