Hours of high-quality video, featuring demonstrations of key graphic design theory and technique, will walk students through the design process step by step. Graphic design concepts like unity, emphasis, color, type, and layout are all covered in depth. Students will develop a portfolio of work through a series of hands-on design project, which will be submitted and evaluated by professionals in the field.
