Studio Practice I - Design Essentials

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of designing and design implementation. The students' critical thinking and problem solving skills will be developed by the application of a formal design process, and of design theory, on two-dimensional visual design problems. Through a series of projects and in-class exercises, the student will gain design experience by both following the design process and by appreciating the organizing and compositional effects of applying to various designs the formal elements and principles of design.
