Visual Design Concepts

Fall 2020

Taught By: Soomi Lee

Section: A

CRN: 2857

Credits: 3

Visual Design Concepts is a course dedicated to the connections between visual communication (image, type, compositon), digital media and methods of making. The course focuses on the principles of visual communication and the ways they can be applied within digital media, whether the work is narrative, interactive, or computation-based. As a course in design process, there will be an emphasis on different methods for working, including concept development through iteration. We will cover fundamental principles of visual design including composition, color, typography, layout, style, tools and materials, organizing information, type as form, word and communication. This is not a software-specific class, but students are expected to develop projects through applications or programming languages of their choice. This class is currently closed to registration and waitlisting to preserve elective space for incoming graduate students, and will be opened later in the summer.

Open to: All university graduate degree students.
