This course hones students' abilities to explore advanced visual communication problems that integrate typographic, photographic, and historical concepts in graphic design with an emphasis on the relationship between form and communication as a means to visual problem-solving. Projects reflect applications with specific audiences, contexts, and production criteria. Visual explorations take place through the creation of theoretical and applied projects. These assignments will be supplemented by short readings, lectures, critiques and class discussions aimed at fostering critical engagement with the visual work produced in class. Studio fee assessed. Prerequisites: ART-110, ART-180, and ART-242. May be repeated for credit.
