Typography and Graphic Design

Quick Summary:

Communication is more than words. How the words are presented means a lot. This is what this class looks at and how we can better present this information.

 

Intensive Theme Description:

This class is about communication but not in the writing of the sentences but rather how the information looks on the page. Font choice, text arrangement, inclusion of graphics, color and more communicate a lot in the presentation and this is graphic design. We use computer programs to design and quickly adjust those designs as we experiment with learn about graphic design. We look at the history of graphic design and where it may lead to.
