This is a self-paced ONLINE course. This program is not part of our National Apprenticeship program. Design goes way beyond software and there is a lot of theory behind it. In this introductory course, you’ll learn the basics needed to create an amazing and real design.
For this course, you won’t need any sort of equipment or specific software. “Why? Isn’t design just Photoshop?” you may ask, to which I answer “No, my dear reader! It is not!“. By understanding the process behind what real designers do and understand, you will also be able to see what makes good design. Why is that logo appealing? Why does that poster grab my attention? How is it that I can understand that ad, even though nothing is written on it? After participating in this course, you’ll finally understand more about design and gain the ability to see the world in a different way.
Students will receive six (6) certificates and a portfolio as proof that they have successfully demonstrated the ability to complete all tasks to be successful in this course.
At the end of this course, you will have learned how to:
- Explore and investigate visual representation through a range of image-making techniques;
- Understand basic principles of working with shape, color, and pattern;
- Use proper terms, understand the language and skills of typography;
- Applied the principles of composition and visual contrast.
If you complete the course, along with its optional (but highly recommended) briefs, you will have a core set of graphic design skills that you can apply to your own projects, or to more deeply investigate a specialized area of graphic design.
