GAT-225 - Advanced Typography & Layout Design

2 credits

Advanced Typography & Layout Design is the continuation of Typography & Layout Design, emphasizing clean, functional design while working with more difficult professional elements of type, design, and page layout. The lectures will cover professional works from various sources, as students will learn to critique their own use of text and design elements. Projects will continue to stress primary design elements (learned in the previous course) as students follow directions from design concept to print. In labs, students will learn more effective visual presentation principles, work with 3-D design problems, and further learn professional uses of type and images. Students will continue to work with current layout software applications that are predominant in today's print and digital media industry.
