Form and Code|
This introductory survey explores practices in design and digital media through a sequence of design exercises, workshops, and hands-on projects. Advancing towards an independent final project, participants will hone their skills as makers and thinkers while developing a portfolio of original work for both print and web. While primarily concerned with visual experimentation and expression, this course exposes students to critical topics in media and design through readings, seminars and student presentations. Techniques surveyed in this course include: digital imaging and animation, creative coding, and digital fabrication (if offered in-person).
Access to Adobe Creative Cloud will be required. If this course is run remotely, access to these resources will be the responsibility of each student.
