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