Digital Media Foundations – OL15

Digital Media Foundations – OL15

This course introduces students to core concepts underlying all digital media—graphic design, web, broadcast, animation, illustration and game design—that the COMD department offers in its associate and bachelor degree program. Weekly lectures explain technical concepts such as resolution, compression, and color space, concepts that allow students to produce creative work across media with more predictable results. Students work with a variety of graphic arts software programs to reveal how the software application’s tools and menus incorporate the scientific principles discussed during lecture. Because this course is designed as an orientation to various forms of media, lab exercises and assignments require students to explore industry sources, archives and association sites. One field trip is an integral part of the course so students can witness first-hand professional work in an artistic or commercial setting. Students produce one print design project and one three-minute video, both of which are posted on their Openlab site, along with an written explanation of how their work met the goals of the assignment. Both projects incorporate the technical and aesthetic knowledge discussed in lecture and practiced in laboratory exercises. 2 cl hrs, 2 lab hrs, 3 crs

COMD1200 OL56  Graphic Design Principles ll  Fall 2020

COMD1200 OL56 Graphic Design Principles ll Fall 2020

Explore creative visual communication through graphic design. Using type and graphics, students will participate in the process of communicating concepts by experimenting with image-making techniques. Acquire the professional knowledge, language, and processes needed—from initial thumbnail to final presentation—in multiple disciplines such as graphic design, web design, advertising, motion, illustration, broadcast design production, and others.

EMT1111 Logic and Problem Solving

EMT1111 Logic and Problem Solving

This course introduces the foundations of problem-solving and computer programming as it is applied to computer engineering technology. It provides a basic understanding of programming techniques, logic, and number systems through hands-on laboratory exercises in a modern programming language. Students will learn Python to understand basic programming concepts a. The course encourages students to cooperate with others and use their imagination, creativity, and problem-solving.

COMD1162 – OL28, Raster & Vector, FALL 2020

COMD1162 – OL28, Raster & Vector, FALL 2020

In this course, students will learn concepts and applied theories of digital media and the two fundamental graphic forms: raster and vector digital images and will define and describe similar and contrasting factors in each kind of image. The comparison will also recommend the best practice, specification or standard for using a specific form in a specific application. The course will include basic digital imaging terminology, and techniques including size, resolution, color space and file elements, measurements and file formats. Students are introduced to digital imaging concepts through software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator on the Macintosh operating system. Scanning and digital photography are integrated into lesson plans. 4 cl hrs, 3 cr

COMD 1100 Graphic Principles 1 Spring 2020

COMD 1100 Graphic Principles 1 Spring 2020

This hands-on mixed media course explores the basic principles of design and develops fluency in the visual lexicon. We explore two-dimensional design and color theory and graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. We will develop fundamental skills in two-dimensional design, color and content creation while employing the design process of research, sketching and experimentation.
