Digital Arts 170  - 3 Units
Graphic Design Principles
(Same as: Art 170)

Introduction to visual communication principles as practiced in the graphic design profession. These principles relate to the choice, placement, organization and theme management of graphic elements. These graphic elements are illustrations, photographs, symbols, blocks of type and decorative accessories. Class projects are fashioned after real world projects encountered in the first years of professional work. These projects are produced on computers in the Macintosh Lab using important computer applications encountered in most job sites. The class introduces process selection, problem solving, client relations, production techniques, and print or multi media connections.

This class is a required course for the Graphic Design Advanced Certificate
