Class overview:

This course is intended for students who are fairly new to design and want to start working on the design of their publications for the 2017-18 school year.  The course will focus on three main areas:

  • Bring copies of your paper as well as any inspiration pages from other publications.
  • First part of the course will be a basic intro to design theory that will give you a vocabulary you can use with each other and your staffs.
  • From there we will look at what’s trending in publication design right now and discuss how these techniques can be adapted to a variety of coverage concepts.
  • In the last portion of the class, we will give you time to work in teams on some design/redesign ideas for your publication with the chance to get input from an instructor.
