A Graphic Design Course
Teacher: Jorge Chamorro
28 Sept. – 16 Dec. 2015
Mondays and Wednesdays
19:30 – 21:30 hours
Designing is basically thinking. Good design responds to a deep intellectual process, an effective communicative solution is not to make “pretty things”. It is much more complicated and much more exciting. The main objective of this course is therefore that students think. Teaching is not just about aesthetic foundations or software and tools, it is about thinking, designing and implementing visual communication projects with solvency, with enthusiasm, with commitment for a job well done and with own criteria.
To learn design you have to design. The connecting thread of the course is to make different graphic design projects and the subsequent collective analysis. Thus, the student will develop their creative and analytical capacities. And at the end of the course will have a portfolio much more worthy than a résumé. This does not mean that the theory is shelved. On the contrary, it will deepen in the history of art and thought, and, of course, in the disciplines of graphic design. We will talk about concept, composition, typography, identity, editorial design, signage. There will be a final project in which each student will design their own corporate identity.
For anyone who loves graphic design, communication and art. For those who want to develop as a designer and a creative. No matter the level. The more variety, the more we all will learn. For example both my nephew and Erik Spiekermann would be welcome. That would be perfect.
