GDES 211 Graphic Design II

Builds on knowledge and skills introduced in Graphic Design I. Through well-defined problems and with an emphasis on developing independent working methods, students use critical and creative thinking to formulate effective design solutions. With guidance, students will determine their preferred process for conducting research and working through idea development and implementation phases of the design process. Design thinking strategies are applied to produce audience-focused design solutions. Students will determine how design solutions will translate onto multimedia platforms based on research of the end-user. Presentation and critiquing skills will be further developed as students learn to interpret, discuss, and compare visual forms and messages. This course includes studio and lecture. Students will need to purchase supplies/materials for this course.
