Graphic Design

Making things look good. Design is present in every aspect of our lives, and therefore has many different branches. This course will focus on the visual side – how do you make something look good? How do you convey the hierarchy of information through visual elements? How do you increase the aesthetics of a product? At the end, you should be able to take any idea or content, and turn it into a graphical masterpiece. (Design-wise, that is. We're not trying to paint the next Mona Lisa.)

Prerequisites: Software or tools to create graphics with. Or a really, really strong imagination.
