This course is concerned with developing the student’s confidence and competence in creating form and concepts. Students are prompted to take risks to develop their own voice as designers, as well as to expand the vocabulary with which they express ideas by employing visual rhetorical strategies such as metaphors, puns, irony, metonymy, etc. Simultaneously, students are encouraged to explore formal possibilities while developing work that communicates an intended message, resulting in work that is meaningful, compelling and engaging. A design process of research, ideation, thumbnails, roughs, design development and final presentation will be employed.
