Students begin their study with an introduction to graphic communication concepts and applications, including design considerations, print production, and terminology necessary to effectively prepare simple visual communications. Project work will include the use of computers and page layout software to put concepts into practice. Students study the uses of typography and the composition of visual information. Through exercises and design projects, students develop the ability to select and manipulate type and to compose various elements for visual impact and effective communication. As students advance in their work they develop and execute visual concepts for publications such as magazines, booklets, and newsletters. Aesthetics, terminology, technical considerations, and materials are covered.
