COURSE DESCRIPTION: Graphic design and typography have many definitions that collectively describe a broad activity that encompass all forms of visual expression. This course continues to build on visual communication and problem-solving skills developed in foundation design classes. Layout, composition, and typography skills are engaged in a variety of contexts to gain an understanding of thought processes and technical processes that are inherent to the study and practice of graphic design and typography. 
OBJECTIVES: This course will continue to build on visual communication and problem-solving skills developed in foundation design classes. Layout, composition, and typography skills will be engaged in a variety of contexts. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:
1) Demonstrate an understanding of the historical development of typography and printing.
2) Employ the use of typographic terminology to articulate design solutions.
3) Create sympathetic visual relationships and meaning through the use of typographic hierarchy.
4) Practice basic print, production, and animation problem-solving.
5) Demonstrate the ability to apply technical skills to challenges of legibility and meaning.
6) Employ a strict attention to detail through careful observation.
7) Analyze and articulate the effectiveness of their own work and the work of their peers.
