Core 2: Type & Interaction

Spring 2021

Taught By: Henk Van Assen

Section: A

CRN: 6991

Credits: 3

Building upon the Typography and Interaction Core Studios, this course teaches students intermediate and advanced methods in Typography and Interaction Design to successfully meet the challenges of dynamic content in print and on the web. Students will learn how to address design problems meaningfully within the context of current design practice, technology frameworks and how individual processes and methodologies influence a design outcome. In particular, students will explore how an idea can be expressed and modulated across different mediums and how to create flexible design systems that can produce such expression. They will use their newly acquired design vocabulary to critique and critically discuss work produced by themselves and others. Reading and writing will also form an important component of these discussions, as well. The course is the final sequence of the typography/interaction core classes. Methods and concepts taught in these classes will be used as the foundation for all Core 3 courses.

Open to Associates Degree in Communication Deisgn majors only. Pre-requisite: PACD 1100 Core 1: Typography and PACD 1110 Core 1: Interaction.
