Welcome to Graphic Design

Graphic Design course will explore the ever-changing trends in the global field of design and their application in print production, advertising, and branding. Students will understand the impact of art and design throughout history and various cultures. Students will learn methods and theories such as elements and principles of design to enhance their artistic vision and style. Design projects will develop problem-solving skills, artistic perception, critical thinking, and self-reflection. Art critiques and presentations will provide opportunities for students to grow as artists. Learning and using current versions of industry-standard software and programs will provide students with a professional environment and the associated responsibilities as graphic designers. Graphic Design also includes the history and developments of industry processes, printing, application, layout, and design as it pertains to a variety of substrates; environmental considerations and restrictions; as well as the legal restrictions as they relate to the field of Graphic Design and intellectual property as a whole.
