In this course, you will be designing your own app for the iPhone and iPad. As print becomes increasingly integrated with other media, and the demand for instant gratification on your mobile device skyrockets, it is an exciting time for designers. You will design such things as a 60-minute guide to the Museum of Modern Art (that can be navigated as an app), or a game or music player app that you can personalize to your own interests. The goal is to create a beautiful, modern portfolio piece that shows off your ability to stay on-trend, think outside the box and design for the page as well as the screen. Students will work primarily in Adobe Indesign for page design. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator will also be utilized (but not mandatory). In addition students will learn to create working apps in Mag+ and Adobe Folio Builder.
PREREQUISITE: A working knowledge of Adobe InDesign.
NOTE: Students must have access to a Macintosh computer.
