Advanced Graphic Design

Graphic Design takes students to an advanced understanding of theory and concepts of visual communication used to present information or promote a message to a consumer driven market. Students must have an understanding of the elements and principles of design. Students will be able to apply basic skills learned in previous classes such as typography, image development, layout, scanning images, manipulating photographs, and creating digital artwork to projects that will create comprehensive marketing and advertising plans for companies. Students will apply the understanding of Adobe photoshop to take their digital designs to the next level and learn how to use computer software such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Dreamweaver. Class projects may include: logos, posters, brochures, billboards, flyers, websites and packaging. Students will be assessed on their use of elements and principles of design, originality, and workmanship, ability to assess customer needs, analysis competitor approaches and technical proficiency in each project undertaken.
