Visual Organization + Communication Design
Welcome. Find out what’s happening in our Design 3 studio class by reading along with this blog. Weekly posts will give insights about discussions, lectures, assignments, homework and finished projects.
The main focus of Design 3 is on typography, hierarchy and visual organization. The course builds off of the lessons learned in Design 1 and 2 (gestalt, design vocabulary, design process, value and color) and students will work in both plastic media as well as with digital tools especially InDesign as well as Illustrator and Photoshop. Topics of study will include typographic anatomy, typographic texture, grids, and an exploration of semiotics, branding and communication design.
