The Design Process
The Identity Project
The second project is based in marketing and the design process. The Identity Project starts with a chosen brief that gives you the information you need to create a unique, stunning design logo and letterhead for an imaginary company. You will learn the ins and outs of dealing with clients and how to go from a spark of an idea to a fully interactive graphic design created with the Adobe programs Illustrator and Indesign.
The Brochure Project
The third project is a brochure started off on a different imaginary company. The brief you choose will include in pertinent information to create the ultimate brochure. You will learn all about the ‘behind the scenes’ parts of graphic design including finding inspiration, visual hierarchy, layout and how to work on a grid.
The Independent Project
The last project is an independent study done almost exclusively by the student based on either a real or made up company. You can create whatever you want, including a logo, a letterhead, a brochure…whatever it is that will show off your design skills and make your client happy!
