This course provides a study of the placement of visual elements in page development. This includes the manipulation of images, text, color, and other graphic elements to create a finished product that incorporates the principles of good design, layout, and aesthetics. Students use systematic, cumulative, and conceptual design processes to develop effective and creative layout solutions. Industry-standard software is used for page layout and composition. Students explore theories of design, spatial relationships, idea representation, page elements, and visual and conceptual communication. Students integrate images, illustrations, typography, and display and other elements to create brochures, advertisements, flyers, menus, books, and other products for the printed and projected page.
