CORE1120 - Visual Literacy I
Visual Literacy I provides an introduction to the principles of creative design and the common organizational systems associated with color theory. Leveraging 2-D, 3-D and 4-D strategies, the elements of design and the properties of color are identified, employed and controlled in progressively more complex projects. Effective design strategies, color management tools, functional page layout, typographic principles and conceptual solutions are investigated. Course projects require the use of traditional studio processes in conjunction with digital media employing the Adobe Creative Cloud - Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. Software literacy is facilitated by lectures, demonstrations and specialized technological support. Critical examination and research of design practices in historic context and contemporary applications initiate conceptual development.
