Course No. GDS203.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Eugene Pawlowski
This is one of the two central classes in the first year of study in Communication Design (alongside Design for Communication I) In the first semester, students become familiar with the broader discipline of the field through the construction of abstract design concepts, layout, symbols, and sequential systems. Conceptual thinking and the integration of typography with imagery are explored throughout the course. In the 2nd semester, students investigate projects that follow the various sub-fields of the profession; projects include Identity, Web/Interactive, Information and Wayfinding. Students will be assigned multiple projects throughout the year. Each project begins with a lecture and demonstration of techniques. Each week, students practice presentation to the larger group in formal and informal critique and brainstorming sessions. Faculty will work one on one with students to answer questions and assist in the process. Reviews will be held at key points during each project. Offered fall. 3 credits.
Course No. CDS204.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Eugene Pawlowski
Through the use of studied, well designed and competently executed design solutions, we will emphasize the effective and sensitive use of typeforms in complex and sustained communication projects. The attributes of rhythm, proportion, hierarchy, and progression will be investigated, emphasized, and practiced to produce excellent quality professional solutions. Projects are carried out in varying degrees of execution including sketchbook roughs, presentation sketches, laser comprehensives, and finished art. Thoughtful experimentation with the software and imaging equipment is encouraged to extend and challenge the process. The course objectives will be pursued through assigned projects, explanations, demonstrations, and group critiques.expand collapse
VAT: Aesthetics, Style,& Content
Aesthetics Style and Content focuses primarily, on the acquisition of creative and technical skills in the context of the development of original ideas and personal style. Studio work will consist of the practical exploration of the relationship between formal, technical, aesthetic, and stylistic issues relative to the personal, and thematic subjects of the students own choosing. Relative to this, in the seminar portion of the course the students are given critical, theoretical, philosophical background to issues surrounding the subjects of style, aesthetics and content. In the studio the students are encouraged to think of their work as an integrative whole consisting of these various components. In this context they are required to engage in independent critical research on topics relevant to their work. Their research takes the form of both archival and studio work and is presented in both visual and written form. This course is required for all junior students in VATe during their spring semester. 3 credits.expand collapse
