This unit of study introduces students to the principles of visual design, including gestalt theory, principles of graphic design, colour theory and typography. Students will develop an understanding of how to successfully combine visual elements to effectively communicate an idea or concept, to describe a product, and to represent visual user interface elements in an interactive product. Using industry standard software such as Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC, students will learn how to develop design concepts and how to turn concepts into visual communication materials in the form of digital documents.
