Although the Adobe Creative Suite is the “go to” collection of graphic design apps — there are alternatives! This class will not focus on a single app, but rather how they work together to produce your project — and produce it correctly. The class will cover several graphic design projects that will require the use of a variety of tools.
What is Graphic Communications?
Any printed or digital “document”: simple flyer, postcard, basic website, simple animation, magazine, social media graphics, logo, illustration, even a letter or spreadsheet! Just about any visual element is a graphic communications.
This course will be delivered via Zoom.
