In this workshop, students will be introduced to the elements and principles of basic design. Part history lesson, and part art class, students will learn about design in the world we live in (the good and the bad) and create a variety of projects including logomarks, posters, mailers, ads, and brochures. Through the study of typography, design concepts, and design problem-solving, students will learn about visual communication, creating and finessing a design and working with the creative process with a final product in mind. Using Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign, we’ll work through basic design projects as well as view and discuss a variety of professional work samples. Participants must be comfortable with basic computer operations. Mac experience is helpful, but not required.
