Graphic design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas. In this course, graphic design is approached as an instrument to interact with the local community. Students will begin to create relationships and design solutions that make a positive impact on society. They will work with painted,drawn, photographed and/or computer-generated images in order to communicate ideas with software they are already familiar with as an instrument to enhance their projects. Students will be challenged to expand their comprehension of design problem solving for new audiences and will develop skills in design methodology in a collaborative, process-based approach. Local-based projects will provide students the opportunity to work on current issues in an immersive city life experience.
