Graphic Design Courses

Visual Organization + Media

Course No. IME200  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Larry O'Neal | Mary Jo Toles

In this course students will develop better organization and composition, knowledge and appreciation for type, integration of type and grid, understanding hierarchy, and type as creative form. Students within IME take this course to help them consider sound design and layout principles in their own work, and organize information in combination with images created in their specific majors. This course is required for all students in Animation, Biomedical Art, Game Design, Illustration, Photography, T.I.M.E.-Digital Arts and Video majors and is open as an elective to students in any other major. Offered fall and spring.

Web Design/Interactive I

Course No. GDS305/405  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Pat Lally
Prerequisite(s) Design for Communication I

Through this course, students will learn how to use different software tools to design, implement, and produce a Graphic User Interface. Our efforts will be mostly concentrated on creating web/internet/ interactive projects, as these will allow for the exercise of ideas and tools across the entire design spectrum. Students will have a grasp of the essential technology used for web applications: the Hyper-Text Markup Language (including HTML 5) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). You will be introduced to several techniques that will allow you to begin making interactive applications, which include PHP, JQuery and Javascript, as well as looking at user experience and design of apps for smart phone and pads. The course will also include an introduction to designing and creating Epub formats. Prerequisite: GDS265 Design for Communication I or permission of fall instructor.

Web Design/Interactive II

Course No. GDS305B/405B  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Pat Lally
Prerequisite(s) Web Design/Interactive I

This class builds and expands the study begun in Web Design/Interactive 1 (Graphic User Interface 1). Students move to more advanced structures and interface ideas. Experimental possibilities are explored as students develop web and portable device designs, furthering the skills learned in the first section of the class. Prerequisite: GDS305 Web Design/Interactive I.

Web Practice + Presence

Course No. IME320  Credits: 0.0

In this course, students will learn about various strategies of making websites and how these are part of contemporary practice as an artist. The ability to frame a project, solve a problem, do research, then implement and use web techniques is explored in this course. Projects will explore the contemporary practice of working with web technologies in professional practice including using FTP, social networking tools and listings, and other interactive forms. Learning basic HTML, exploring online existing portfolio solutions, accessibility, hosting, and ftp will be part of this course. In class students will experience interacting with website examples, discussing selected readings, doing weekly assignments, and participating in critiques. Offered fall and spring.
