Graphic design is all around us, in a myriad of forms, both on screen and in print, yet it is always made up of images and words to create a communication goal.  Look closely, and you’ll find them on websites, apparel, product packaging, and different types of advertising. Even personal items, like documents and business cards, have some form of graphics.

Through interactive sessions and class exercises, participants will learn the fundamental skills required to make sophisticated graphic design: process, historical context, and communication through image-making and typography.

The goal of this mini-course is to equip learners with a set of transferable formal and conceptual tools for “making and communicating” in the field of graphic design. This core skill set will equip learners for formal studies in graphic design, and a starting point for further work in interface design, motion graphics, and editorial design. The desired outcome of the workshop is for the participants to create a capstone (hands-on) project to initiate the development of their design portfolio.
