Description

A digital portfolio is the ideal vehicle to claim your identity as an artist or designer, and is the easiest way to present a body of work to potential clients, employers, galleries or graduate schools. This course presents how "going digital" allows you to structure and deliver visual information in a concise and accessible manner for maximum impact. Using Photoshop, you learn to optimize images and to manipulate rich media (video, audio, animation) to build a portfolio that can be viewed in a web browser or on a portable device. Hand coding techniques (including XHTML, CSS and JavaScript) are introduced and practiced as a means to create an interactive showcase that has become the best way to present a professional identity.

Applies to: AN-E, GR-E, ID-E, IT-E, JM-E, NS-E, PG-E, PM-E, PS-E

Description

The human mind has a built-in design for success: a brilliant system operating behind the scenes. Understanding the powerful simplicity of its design helps unlock the source for insightful solutions to power your design business creation. When you grasp how something works, you can more effectively utilize it, whether it's design tools, your computer, your body or your elegantly-designed mind. In this course, you'll learn how to leverage the power inherent in the design of the mind to create and innovate more effectively with less resistance and stress. We’ll answer the questions "What are the implications of a paradigm shift in understanding the human design?" and "How can we apply those implications to achieve professional success?” You'll realize the power and mechanism of insight and how you can tap this ability and its implications to solve your own design and business problems and work at a new level of innovation with solution-oriented thinking.
