Principles of Graphic Design

What makes good design good? Learn about the history of graphic design, the basics of color theory, the elements and principles of design, and the tools and technologies used in visual communication. You will explore the essential principles for beautiful and effective visual communication in your print or graphic design projects. Learning the "rules" of design, how to consistently apply them, and when to break them will enhance your graphic design creations. Examine how features such as color, shape, texture, size, and value contribute to an effective design. Learn how balance, contrast, alignment, rhythm, repetition, movement, harmony, emphasis, and unity work together to convey your intended message.
