ABOUT THIS workshop series

The goal of graphic design is to communicate a specific message to a targeted audience. This class will give a broad overview of the history of graphic design and its core concepts, then walk through a sample project from start to finish. Finally, the student will leave with a series of exercises, tools and resources that will help for beginning new projects on their own. This class is for people curious about a career shift to graphic design; people wanting to start personal projects; people who think, "I can't design, I don't know anything about that" — developers, writers, business people; and anyone who wants to learn to communicate with a more robust visual vocabulary.

  • Fundamentals of graphic design concepts to use as building blocks.
  • Build confidence in being able to verbalize what you see.
