Description

This is a survey course, I do not go into specifics about HOW the work is created, rather we'll explore WHY the work is good, the thinking that went into it, and any other anecdotes I may have about each field.

I cover nine graphic design specialties. They are: logos, packaging, posters, book covers, motion graphics, websites, annual reports, environmental graphics, and editorial design.

Enjoy!
