This course introduces the fundamentals of digital design using Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop taught within the context of contemporary professional design. Students will learn to navigate these three essential graphic design programs and to use the tools and functions necessary for professional design work, both as individual software programs and in combination with one another. Upon completion of this course, students will have a solid understanding of how to use Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop to create typography, layouts and images. We strongly recommend that students who do not have prior design experience also enroll in CGD 1011: Principles of Graphic Design.
