dsgd 105 intermediate graphic design

Time: m/w, 3:30–6:20 pm
Location: 226 is


This course investigates design via numerous methodologies—including visual research, peer-to-peer collaboration, creative problem-solving, and design thinking among others. The course will cover the various ways that design functions—how visual communication takes form and is recognized by an audience—as well as core issues inherent in design: word and image, structure, and sequence. Some essential by-products will be to expand the conceptual framework of projects through responding to formal experimentation and innovation, and to take part in immersive analysis and refinement of an individual design methodology. This course requires rigourous investigation and copious generation of original content for all assignments. You will be expected to research, write, conceptualize, and design as an integral part of all assignments.
