FAA 2830 - Layout Analysis and Construction

Credits: 4
In this studio course you will be introduced to the basics of visual communication and effective layout design for print and screen. Topics covered: introduction to typography; visual hierarchy; color theory and meaning; grid construction; type and image integration; print vs. screen design; and industry software knowledge. Additionally, the course will further your understanding of how to manipulate the Design Elements and Principles for effective and meaningful communication. Woven into each project will be interdisciplinary study. Examples of this are: going to see a play and then designing a poster; or designing an App for NASA’s “Image for a Day” or Robert Shetterly’s portrait series, “Americans Who Tell the Truth.” An interdisciplinary approach helps you understand how much Design is everywhere.
