Welcome to GRD 3000 - Intro to Graphic Design

Hello Students!

Welcome to GRD 3000! I am excited to teach this class, as it will showcase your creativity. This is an introductory course to the discipline of visual communications. It is not a class that will teach computer software such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, although help, demos, and tips for using these programs will be offered periodically throughout the course. 

It will educate you in basic design terminology and theory and the development and communication of creative concepts, from inception to completion. 

Be prepared to verbalize your thought processes as you develop your projects, as class critiques will be a regular event. Your peers and I will offer our insights on your projects in order to make them as strong as they can possibly be. Critiques and class meetings will be held in room 468. 

Expect to work on assignments during class and outside of our regular meeting time. If you are interested in the field of graphic design, this is your foundation course and where your design portfolio begins! 

For now, that's it! I am looking forward to a great semester! 

See you Wednesday!
