This design course will explore design and layout considerations for various production media. Students will study principles of design including color theory, line, texture, pattern, balance, space and movement. Students will be introduced to computer graphics creation using industry standard software packages such as Macromedia Freehand and Adobe PhotoShop. Students will also experience hands-on drawing and design lessons to develop their own senses, learn how to use paths, manipulate basic shapes and text, apply color and gradients, implement styles, work in multiple layers, trace, and scale. Students will be able to use these design applications for future study in Web Design and Multimedia Production.
