CM 200 - Introduction to Design (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
Design is a process of purposeful creation: A specific response to a specific event. This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of visual design and software skills. Throughout the semester we will explore the aesthetics and techniques of design and visual communication. Lectures, demonstrations and projects will allow students to build and manipulate both vector and bitmap graphics. Course projects will teach the logic and process of visual communication for print and online media, build fluency in design principles, and ready the student for the vibrant world in which design software is used.
