Life Sciences Illustration: Advanced Problems, Concepts, + Media

Course No. LSI 354  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki

In this course the student will continue investigating complex concepts and techniques in life sciences media and apply them to advanced visual communication problems. The focus will be on developing conceptual visual storytelling skills (first in sketch form/storyboarding for client proofing, then rendered digitally for final art). Students will learn to take complex information presented by biomedical subject matter and simplify it to solve visual communication problems effectively for the target audience. Advanced digital illustration techniques in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and the integration of time-based software will be used as the basis to solve illustration problems. Students outside the major will learn techniques and concepts in visual communication for editorial and narrative based projects. Offered spring.
