visual communications 1

sophomore studio

Students will be introduced to the formal theories, concepts and visual tools that support graphic design.  Form studies will examine line, curve, composition, visual balance, form/counter form, rhythm, and progression.  This logical foundation will promote an understanding of clear formal language, while developing design problem solving and critical thinking.  A fluid formal vocabulary will be applicable in all subsequent coursework. A broad range of methods and tools (both traditional and digital) will support the student’s creative exploration with simple visual elements.
