DES-251 Making Meaning

VCD 1: Making Meaning Studio introduces Visual Communication Design students to the skills, methods, and theory involved in the creation and use of semiotics (icon, index, symbol) and visual rhetoric as modes of visual expression within visual communication (graphic design). Over the course of the semester students will develop and strengthen skills in visual communication strategies, communication theory, and roles within message senders and receivers in the communication process. Students will be expected to design relevant, meaningful and appropriate visual form in response to contexts and communication problems while integrating visual and verbal messages meant to communicate to a clearly defined audience. Prerequisites: DES-202.
