GDES-200 Visual Communication Design FA1 (3)

Students engage in hands-on design practices, develop creative thinking strategies, and devise solutions to visual communication design challenges. The course familiarizes students with visual principles, essential software, and techniques that serve the basic designer needs. Students also develop fluency in the principles of visual language to form a basis of aesthetic judgment and develop methods of analysis and inquiry for creative thinking. Students combine in-studio practice with class critiques of work, software tutorials, and supporting lectures. Usually offered every term.
