Graphic Design


Graphic Design is art that combines images, words, and ideas to communicate messages to an audience. This is an applied arts class that often simulates working for a client. Students will focus on creative problem solving as well as sophisticated technical skills. Topics of study begin with an investigation of typography, the principles of design, and the basic tools and techniques of desktop publishing. The Macintosh computer will be used as a tool in approaching assignments such as: logos, flyer and poster design, package design and advertising design. Advanced projects may include book jacket design, magazine layout, and image design for corporate identity.
