What is the perfect recipe for a persuasive graphic design solution and how do you combine those ingredients for the best effect? Each variable is subject to choice and, whether shrewdly or poorly made, those choices cannot help but change the overall impact of the project. Students in this course are introduced to image making methods that are determined by underlying graphic and typographic messages. Assignments are devised to reinforce conceptual thinking and to foster understanding and evaluation of source information. The aim is to empower the graphic artist/advertising designer with a full visual literacy that best serves the project's needs.
