About This Workshop

This bootcamp is for anyone who wants to understand how to make beautiful and (most importantly) effective digital designs.

Visual design is more than simply being able to make something look “nice.” Good designers understand how to use the principles of design and human visual perception to communicate effectively with their target audience — to inspire them, encourage them to buy something, engage with a community, etc.

In the first part of this bootcamp, we’ll be learning the basic stages of the design process (research, ideation, wireframing, design) and design theory fundamentals (color, composition, and typography). Then, you’ll get to practice applying these new skills through in-class activities, and have the opportunity to iterate on and improve your designs through critique.

Takeaways

Working through a series of guided demos, you’ll: - Understand the value of design and the design process - Be familiar with key stages of the visual design process from research to final mockup - Touch on essential design principles including composition, color theory, and typography. - Learn the basics of Photoshop and how to use it. - Replicate an artifact using layers, tools, and more. - Survey today’s digital design landscape and its career opportunities. - Experience with giving, receiving, and applying design feedback

Preparation

All students must bring a laptop and have the Photoshop trial downloaded and ready to go. (http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html)

For those students who already have wireframes they want to design or feel free to bring projects you want to work on during class.

The workshop will be 30-40% instruction and 60-70% hands-on assistance from the instructor (as needed), so please bring your questions with you.
