Welcome to Graphic Design


Graphic Design is the process and art of combining text and graphics to communicate an effective message in the design of logos, graphics, brochures, newsletters, posters, signs, and any other type of visual communication.  Designers achieve their goals by utilizing the elements and principles of graphic design.

This basic course introduces you to a broad base of visual communication concepts and tools. You will learn fundamentals of typography, design, layout and digital skills.   We’ll begin with basic design and type exercises reinforced each week in the digital portion of class using digital cameras, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.   This course provides an introduction to the design skills needed to produce graphics for print, advertising, and identity.

Miss J has a few things for you to fill out in class.
