Design Communication 2

In Design Communication 2 students continue to develop techniques for accurate visual representation of 3D forms and concepts in 2D space. Design Communication 2 is typically taken the first year in the ID program (sophomore year). Students will draw from real source material as well as concept and imagination to quickly and effectively communicate their ideas and begin to develop strategies for realizing abstract forms and concepts. Media used is primarily pencil, pen and marker. Instructors give weekly demonstrations of materials, techniques and visualization followed by assignments designed to develop each student's individual skills. Feedback on each student's design process and abilities will be provided through individual desk crits with the instructor as well as group presentations and critiques. This class requires a large number of assignments due for each class period. Skills introduced: color theory, composition, 2D layout. Skills reinforced: precision drawing, rendering, 2D form, visual fluency, visual stylization, media techniques (pencil, pen, marker).
