The combination of type and image is a vital form of visual communication in conveying complex ideas, constructing meanings, implied narratives, and emotions. Students of this course explore the relationship between type and image across print and digital media. Course projects combine visual and verbal elements to create sophisticated designs while looking at the formal considerations of materials in art and design production.
Students are encouraged to use traditional media and digital computer programs, with an emphasis on the exploration of and through materials, process, and iteration.
For online courses, students must have access to Adobe CC Illustrator to complete assignments. Students are responsible for purchasing their own software for class.
