Welcome to MM 332: Electronic Design and
This class is an introduction to layout design
for print that covers typography, layout theory, pre-press
production and project management. It also emphasizes practical
development techniques to produce digital visual images efficiently.
Software instruction is in Adobe Illustrator.
Some of the questions we will be asking in
this class are, how do the elements, practices and techniques
of layout combine to become eye catching designs? How can
we manipulate these elements to maximize our ability to communicate
effectively? How can we use language more effectively? Can
we use of a visual language as well as a written one? When
is it appropriate to put type at the core of a design and
when is it appropriate to put an image there instead?
