VCC International

Composition (VCDP 1140)

In this course, students will learn how to apply traditional design principles and client communication objectives confidently to a variety of compositions. They will learn to identify the key factors that determine a designer’s selection, and the use and treatment of type and image within design projects under the consideration of compositional design principles. They will integrate type and image, give a layout a clear focus, create relationships between type and image and create a visual and typographic hierarchy. Some projects are based on semiotics in order to create meaning through perceived visual, illustrated, and typographic relationships. While working through these concepts, students will continue to develop proficiency in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
