Have you wondered about the creative process behind your favorite magazine’s layout or the logo for your favorite brand? Graphic design is more than just combining text and graphics; it is the application of art and communication skills to meet the needs of the client. It takes skill and knowledge from several disciplines to make a printed piece outstanding. Designers must concern themselves with the message and the aesthetics in order to realize the purpose of the piece. We will explore this process in Introduction to Graphic Design. In this class students will learn the basis for good design, some “rules” for graphic design industry standards, and an introduction to the computer programs used in the graphic design industry (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign). Students will take their knowledge and apply it to create their own project(s) using real world graphic design scenarios.  Please bring a flash drive and a sketchbook/notebook. This course can be used to partially fulfill the MLHS Practical Arts requirement.
