Description

Class Experience

Students will be challenged to think outside the box and create concepts that are abstract, but still strong. They will need to adhere to deadlines as well as engage in peer critique.
I have a degree in Graphic Design and have been a web designer for over 20 years.  I believe that the art of graphic design, or at the very least an appreciation for that art, is something that everyone should practice.  Graphic design floods our visual perception from everywhere, from the products we buy to the advertisements we are exposed to.  I want to share my knowledge of graphic design so that kids understand the basic elements and can build on that to become creative critical thinkers.
Day 3 - Thumbnails will be due to be posted in the classroom for critique. Students are expected to participate in peer critique within the classroom.
Day 5 - Roughs are due to be posted in the classroom for critique. Students are expected to participate in peer critique within the classroom.
Day 7 - Final Comps are due to be posted in the classroom for critique. Students will engage in live critique at the beginning of class.
