Overview of class

Unlock your creativity and explore your visionary potential. In this course you'll be introduced to creating and developing a visual response to communication problems, including understanding of hierarchy, typography, aesthetics, composition and the construction of meaningful images. Design is approached through giving equal attention to the written and visual aspects of journalism. Students become more visually observant and critical., amplifying their communication problem solving skills including identifying the problem, researching and analyzing, and finding a solution. Ending the quarter with the creation of an amazingly creative and fully functional mobile app/story prototype using no code.
