This course will advance your understanding of the structures and systems that are the building blocks of design. In this course, you will explore visible and underlying graphic structures as primary devices for organizing design content, and learn how these systems become activated. Adobe Illustrator and InDesign are among the digital tools students are expected to use to define these unifying structures and systems. The class builds upon a foundation of weekly exercises as students develop a solid understanding of the practical considerations involved in the planning and delivery of a conclusive graphic design project. Students will focus on two distinct systems: color and typography. A series of quick exercises will prepare students for the two in-depth projects.
Students must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.
All other prerequisites for Graphic Structures and Systems (Part A) apply.
