Course Description

A graphic designer is a creative problem solver who conceptualizes, plans and executes a design that communicates a message. Hands-on assignments teach the technical skills of graphic design alongside an examination of conceptual thinking and the design process. You’ll engage in methods and exercises such as brainstorming, mind-mapping, research, concept development, iteration, sketching, making, and critique. Through real or simulated projects, case studies of actual local organizations, discussion, and a review of past work, participants will explore the impact Graphic Design can have on identifying, creating, and communicating the identity and brands of organizations.

NOTE: Course includes both live online class sessions and asynchronous (independent) work on assignments.
