ARTS 203 - Graphic Design I

Through an introduction to visual semiotics, students learn to further develop meaning in their designs. Students examine theories of visual communication, explore denotative and connotative forms, and utilize communicative tools such as composition, color, hierarchy, scale, rhythm, and visual metaphor to establish form based on content. Upon completion of the course, students have developed image-making techniques for solving complex visual problems, through both analog and digital processes while considering the complicated relationship between language, meaning, and form.
