Graphic Communications [VCC 100] .5 credit
Using a hands-on approach, students will solve visual communications problems and explore careers in Graphic Design/Media Arts. Students will learn to use Adobe CS software [Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign] on state-of-the-art Apple computers. Basics of media arts, workplace skills, print production, cost estimates, what it means to “preflight work,” font management, color theory, and the formal elements of design–including investigation of line, form, value, color, shape and composition–will also be covered.
This course is a required elective for students in the Graphic Design Career Pathway.
