Visual Communication and Graphic Design: An Overview

Gain a thorough understanding of what graphic design is, and learn by working through the design process on a series of image, type, layout, and logo design projects. Additionally, each session will include a mini-project that centers on key skills in three Adobe Creative Cloud software programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Upon completion of the course, you will have a better understanding of graphic design and a number of portfolio-ready graphic design projects.

This course is delivered in an online, self-paced (asynchronous) format. The instructor interacts with students and facilitates group discussions within NYU’s online learning platform. There are weekly deadlines for lesson and assignment completion.
