PROGRAM SUMMARY

We believe that good design is the result of a profound intellectual process, and not just about making “pretty pictures.” So, a solid understanding of design fundamentals is essential. To achieve this, we will study the history of design, its most important influencers, and the different approaches and theories surrounding design. Students will learn about communication, typography, composition, layout, visual identity, signage, and editorial design.

A large part of the course will comprise of implementing a variety of graphic design projects, and subsequently taking part in a collective group analysis of that work. Thus, the students will develop their creative and analytical skills. 

Students will gain a basic and functional understanding of three essential software applications for a graphic designer: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. The course will cover current information, tools, and techniques used to create digital materials for a variety of visual communications applications. including: resolution, colour modes, editing, file formats, and output for print and web media. Students will learn the basics of pixel-based software (Photoshop), how to edit, retouch, and colour correct images, and create composites from multiple images. The next phase will cover vector-based software (Illustrator), developing problem-solving skills related to illustration techniques and output media files suitable for web and print. The course will conclude with an introduction to digital page layout design software (InDesign). Students will learn how to incorporate text, photos, and vector art files into composed pieces designed for print output.
