Graphic Design

Instructor: Kelly Gibbs

Welcome to the world of Graphic Design! Everywhere you look, you see design … and behind every design is someone like you! Come join us as we take a detailed tour through three of the key Adobe programs a graphic designer uses:  InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. We'll learn how these programs work alone, and we'll also learn how they work together to create amazing pieces of art. Marketing and branding will be part of our journey, as we design for real-world clients in our local communities. We learn how to communicate with customers and develop excellent customer services skills. As part of our design team, you'll also work in our T-Shirt Shop designing and manufacturing apparel items. 

This class is mostly "hands-on.” Students who are interested in taking this class should be comfortable on a computer and have a good eye for design and a desire to create … and a good imagination is helpful too! 

Second year students of this class will not only become better at what they know, but they will have the opportunity to co-teach and provide one-on-one help for those new first year students. If you love design and you love a good challenge - then this is the class for you. (11154A001 & 002)
