Graphic Design II
This one-day seminar is an extension of the Graphic Design I course, amplifying some basic concepts of design. This course should not be thought of as an advanced course in graphic design but rather, an extension of basic design principles.
The course focuses on two types of layouts —designs for print and designs for screen. Participants learn design basics and learn some more advanced techniques for creating layouts particularly for print. Participants are introduced to different design challenges such as creating calling cards and designing posters. Participants are then introduced to animation and interactive documents that can be hosted online on Web sites or Facebook accounts.
