Through a combination of lectures, hands-on learning, and guided practice time, you will develop a graphic designer’s sense of problem solving while building projects toward a personal “body of work”. By creating a variety of projects, you’ll gain an understanding of how to effectively implement professional design tools, how to creatively solve problems, and what solutions are most appropriate for successful design. Each day you’ll learn the most often-used tools and workflows while working on designs you can use in the future.
During this course you will:
-Identify the common themes and tools in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and After Effects.
-Explore core digital design principles, processes and best practices.
-Learn basic typography, design and graphic illustration skills.
-Prepare graphic elements and layout for web, print and motion (video).
-Animate simple graphics.
-Design pieces such as an animated logo, business card, Web portfolio layout comps and a graphic resume.
This is a hands-on class where you’ll “learn by doing”. Therefore you’ll need a computer. If you need any particular software installed, that will be detailed below. Not all programs require special software so if there isn’t any detailed listed below you will only need a computer with a up-to-date web browser. We always recommend that if you have one, that you bring your own computer if at all possible. However, if you need one, we have several Apple iMac workstations with all the necessary software that are available by reservation for only $20 per day. You can reserve a computer rental using this form but you must complete your registration first. In most cases, the class will be taught with the Macintosh version of the software but generally the only difference between the Mac and Windows version is the keyboard shortcuts, using the Command key on Mac and the Control key on Windows.
This class will be presented from the latest version of the Adobe Creative Cloud. If you are using your own computer for the class, it is important that you have the latest version installed!
