Students develop and apply critical thinking and curatorial skills as they learn how to use photography and illustration effectively in design work. The relationship of communication design and imagery is considered through a historical lens exploring the power and impact of images to drive narrative and create meaning. Theoretical and practical applications of imagery in graphic design will be introduced and reinforced through lectures, in-class exercises, and assignments in creating, curating, selecting, and combining images with text. The use of found or researched imagery will be contrasted with commissioned or self-generated imagery.
