This course presents you with in-depth knowledge of, and professional skills within the field of graphic design. Develop your graphic sensibilities through analysis of existing examples of real-life visual identity, branding, and communication along with project-based studio assignments. You work in physical and digital media, and are challenged to use these media in each of your projects throughout the semester. Studios are taught vertically, combining students of different levels. Expectations relate to you as an individual student.
