Students who apply are encouraged to have prior experience in Adobe programs (Photoshop, Illustrator). Although this is a technical course in that students are taught extensive knowledge of the programs, the class will also cover conceptual and theoretical aspects of design such as color theory, branding, and user interface design.
At the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of work showcasing extensive knowledge on several topics and an understanding of various elements of design.
This DeCal is designed for students who are technically proficient and are looking to learn design principles in order to apply their technical skills to projects. This DeCal is not meant to give you all the tools and knowledge to become a professional designer. However, we will provide an essential foundation to start your career in design.
