Credit Hours: 3
Semester: Fall 2024

Prerequisites: All OF THE FOLLOWING: ARTDES 210: Typography.

Description: This studio course explores the basics of print publication design and practice. The core concern is developing a narrative over multiple pages. Students investigate a range of print vehicles to include brochures, books, and magazines, and they consider their similarities and differences. Students explore pacing, sequence and grid use as well as complex typographic and image hierarchies. Students also approach design as both problem-seeking and problem-solving activities, with particular emphasis on constraints and the complex usage of design elements.

Frequency: This course is typically offered in the fall term of every academic year, though scheduling may vary according to future term circumstances.
