The principles of advertising design will be examined to help students judge and articulate the efficacy of creative material in local and global contexts. Students will learn how to gather and apply research on product and service offerings, work as a team to solve creative challenges and execute the visual elements of an advertising campaign across traditional and digital media channels.
