Digital Design

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” Steve Jobs

 

Digital Design is used in almost every successful business today and in all aspects of life. We feel learning about this very important medium of expression is important for any student interested in a design field including but not limited to advertising and graphic design, product and packaging design, machine and architectural design and animation.

 

Partnering with the High School Media and Technology department we offer this pair of semester long digital design courses to all high school students. We will focus on an introduction to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Students will learn programs toolbars, settings, and introductory level skills to complete multiple digital projects.  Students will also work on file management and basic computer etiquette. An emphasis on design and elements of art will be taught to link both the studio arts and the graphic arts together. Students will learn how the basic elements of art will apply to multiple genres and mediums in the art world.   Students will use their own personal cameras (or iPad) for photo taking. Lessons will be given on proper photography. An emphasis on design and elements of art will be taught to link both the studio arts and the graphic arts together.
