About the Course
"A Graphic Designer is a creative problem solver who is trained to conceive, plan, and execute a design that communicates a direct message in an imaginative and visually arresting manner to an intended audience regardless of the medium. Effective visual communication requires a Graphic Designer to inform and motivate a viewer."
Welcome to Graphic Arts and Design 3/4, where students combine their knowledge of three Adobe Suite CS6 programs: Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Each semester of this course is catered to individual groups of students who are building their portfolios while demonstrating their knowledge of the Elements and Principles of Design.
Students in this course learn advanced Typography knowledge, develop their understanding of how the three programs interact with each other, and a strong emphasis on the Principle of Unity is placed upon each project. Students also learn how to print and finish their projects in advanced mediums such as web design or interactive PDFs. By the end of Graphic Arts and Design 3/4, students will have created work that is reminiscent of an entry level college course in Graphic Design.
