This condensed survey course focuses on four major areas of design and their history: Typography, Image-Making, Interactive Media, and Branding. In each class, we'll start by observing the factors that influence and shape aesthetic outcomes. You'll begin to see how design elements come in to being. Quizzes at the end of each module test your knowledge of concepts, developments and principal players, and a short reflective assignment will give you the opportunity to analyze the key questions designers ask themselves today.
