History of Graphic Design

Spring 2021

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 1205

Credits: 3

This class exposes students to significant and great design from the history of visual communications, focussing on the 20th Century. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but provides a foundation of understanding graphic design as it exists today. Students will look closely at formal relationships within historical designs and respond in original designs of their own. The greater portion of the class is given to slide lectures, and requires additional visual research and reading outside of class. Part of the class will take the form of a traditional studio course in which students work on projects that use historical designs as a window into a unique contemporary visual moment.

Open to: All University Undergrad student.
