Introduction to Graphic Design
We begin with the “What Is” of Graphic Design and how Graphic Design is all about visually communicating an idea, thought, message or meaning by combining symbols, images and/or words. We also give an overview of the “Holy Trinity” of Graphic Design applications - Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign and how designers best use these tools.
Elements & Principles of Design
In this lesson you will learn to develop a “Designer’s Eye”, by understanding the building blocks of Graphic Design. You will understand how to use Line, Shape, Colour, Texture, Mass and Space to communicate your message and use Principles to bring order and structure to your designs.
Colour Theory & Photoshop Introduction
One of the most important factors of any design is colour. Colour theory creates a logical structure and is vital to understand as part of your design education. Colour can set a mood, attract attention, or make a statement. It can be your most powerful design element and here you will learn how to understand and use it effectively.
