PACD 1100 Core 1: Typography and PACD 1110 Core 1: Interaction.This class exposes students to significant and great design from the history of visual communications, focusing on the 20th Century. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but provides a foundation of understanding communication design as it exists today. Students will look closely at formal relationships within historical designs and respond in original designs of their own. The class combines lectures, which require additional visual research and reading outside of class, with active making as students will have to design responses to prominent figures and historic moments of the disciplines. Students will also experience basic introductions to color theory and elements and principles of design. Please note this will count as an equivalent for PAGD 1010 A History of Graphic Design.

Open to: Associate Degree in Communication Design students only. Co-requisite: PACD 1100 Core 1: Typography and PACD 1110 Core 1: Interaction. Part-time AAS Communication Design students can request to register without this co-requisite.
