FIAR 123 - Graphic Arts and Digital Design


3 Credits
Building on the principals of design taught in FIAR 120, this course offers an overview of various techniques and concepts used in contemporary graphic arts and digital design. Acknowledging the interconnected yet distinct specializations within the field, the course will touch on a variety of practices: digital illustration, photo compositing and manipulation, text layout, animation and interactivity. Emphasis will be placed on how these practices can combine and overlap to create rich media experiences. In addition to technical, formal, and conceptual skill-building, the course will also offer models for how these skills can be employed in the service of fine art, social advocacy and commercial design. The course will use software from the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, a cloud-based industry standard, cross-platform software suite for creative professionals
