In this foundational course, students will learn design principles as they apply to graphic designers. Students will begin by exploring and identifying the roles and responsibilities of a creative team and the role of the graphic designer within that team. They will also develop informed use of colour schemes and harmonies, and then analyse different uses and functions of colour within a design project. Through the exploration of history, students will learn how to identify the main influential visual movements, which influence contemporary graphic designers. By critiquing their own and each other's work, students will develop terminologies and methodologies to analyze design. Design process and theories will be the focal points of this course.
