Knowledge and learning is through lecture, hands-on presentation, readings, collaboration, and learning-by-doing. Additionally, traditional sketching techniques are employed along with brainstorming sessions. Real client work can be integrated into this course. Projects focus both on creating printed documents and preparing files for electronic dissemination.
