Graphic Design and Illustration I is an introductory course that explores the elements, principles, and tools of the graphic design and illustration industries. Students begin the course by analyzing the various elements of design such as color, shape, and value and applying them to unique works of their own. Personal projects include product label design, logo design, figure drawing, designing type, and more. The course focuses on design tool basics such as software applications and computer hardware. The student will practice design skills directly on computer applications while exploring other key professional skills such as creating design proposals, typography, cyber security, printing, copyright laws, artist critiques, and other career tools. The course concludes by having students assemble a graphic design and illustration portfolio. Their portfolio can be used for art school applications, job placement, or general professional development.
