Digital Surface Exploration

Fall 2020

Taught By: Elizabeth Torres

Section: A

CRN: 9286

Credits: 3

"This course explores digital tools and techniques of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, in tandem with material methods and processes for fabric manipulation and presentation, fostering a creative synthesis of the two. It investigates the vocabulary and techniques of traditional surface and textile design to provide a strong underpinning for developing and manipulating images and colors. Color and trend research are integral to the process. Students will create a library of unique patterns and palettes, that can be applied to any surface, with the option to research homegrown and commercial solutions to their individual design projects, to transform 2-D designs into 3-D objects and samples. Creation of a formal presentation is the culmination of the course, and students investigate portfolio options including digital and interactive formats, blogs, and printed presentations.
