In this course a range of visual narrative techniques will be introduced that can be used to communicate through the educated use of typography, illustration, photographs, sound, and video. Solid research, strategy, and ideas are amplified by great design! Through foundational graphic design methodologies, students will learn to articulate concepts and communicate their ideas with clarity and persuasion in presentations, pitch decks and their portfolio. Students can choose to work on outcomes utilizing prior studio work, or the content of their choice. Through this course, participants will develop a deeper understanding of how to strengthen and support content through proper pacing and storytelling. Exercises will develop design and communication skills around grid systems and formatting, typography, and information hierarchies along with the supportive use of color and images.
