visual communications 1
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.
