This course will show you how effective graphic design is essential to daily life as it informs, instructs, warns, and entertains us. You will also discover that design is a complex process involving research and analysis, concept development, critical evaluation, refinement, and execution. Hone your critical thinking strategies for effective graphic design by practicing what you learn in relation to print- and web-based communications. This is accomplished by creating a compelling concept for an ad, assessing a brand, building a visual identity around the persona, and producing a memorable promotional piece for an event campaign. You will draw and sketch concepts by hand as this skill development is paramount for advancing into creating digital content.
