This unit is offered as an introduction to graphic design fundamentals with particular emphasis upon typography. Students will access specific computer applications adopted by graphic designers for a diverse range of activities such as logotype design, typographic layout and digital imaging. It recognises that the study of design concepts pertaining to symbols, signs and visual metaphors must include contemporary methods of production, therefore as part of the program students will undertake a series of practical assignments that reinforce these objectives. Topics for study will include fundamentals of computer hardware and software, typography, graphic techniques and applications.
