Graphic Design and Silkscreen

Spring 2020

Taught By: Katarzyna Gruda and Emily Wardwell

Section: A

CRN: 7032

Credits: 3

A typographically driven course created to deepen one's knowledge of the design process while one acquires a practical understanding of production issues (including but not limited to: silkscreen, offset, hand made, computer). Students will create multi-page works, including a self promotional leave behind piece. The course is focused on student development through the medium of silkscreen, as applied specifically to the poster and the short run art book, or 'zine. Formal issues are explained, such as how to get the most out of a two to three-color job, understanding typographic hierarchies, and the use of space on the page. Conceptual issues are also addressed, including how to arrive at one's best ideas (Sketching and Research), the design process, and what makes a good poster/short run art book, or 'zine. This course is equivalent to PAGD 1098 Graphic Design and Silkscreen.
