This course examines the theory and practice of graphic design to create visual imagery as a form of expression. Students study aesthetics, formal elements, and stylization as applied to an array of media, whether digital, traditional or hybrid. Whether in two or three dimensions, emphasis is placed on digital design, although the use of conventional conceptual approaches and media is also encouraged. The expressivity of image making is explored through individual or collaborative projects spanning media, styles and subject matter. Prior design or drawing experience not required.
