Graphic Design Basics Unit

Link to Graphic Design Basics Unit Projects

The Graphic Design Basics unit will start shortly after the Design Book is completed. The Design Book is a series of introductory assignments meant to familiarize students with the basic elements and principles of art. The Graphic Design Basic unit is more specific in nature. Assignments will be more specific than those of the Design Book and will be more applied design, working with conventional end products that you might encounter in a work situation: logo design, advertisement, brochure layout, etc.

You won’t be ready to complete some of these projects digitally for some time into the program due to the length of time your computer instruction will take. This is an ongoing balancing act that, at times, can lead to some discontinuity in the order of assignments. Some of these assignments will be incorporated into our direct computer instruction when appropriate.
