COMD 1100, fall 2018

This basic design and color theory course explores graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. This is a course in visual literacy and the design process: How we see, how we analyze the effects of our vision, and how we craft a design that will have energy and content. All projects will include thumbnail sketches, discussion and research. A weekly scrapbook will be kept. Media used are paint, paper, ink, pencil, ruler, knife, glue, and digital software for expressing graphic ideas. Numerous critiques will take place throughout the course and students’ active engagement in group discussion will play a vital role in establishing an atmosphere of collaboration and shared learning.

ENG 1101 LC31 Fall 2018

We think differently about writing than most. We generate and edit, analyze and share; and our thoughts and feelings take shape on the page in the form of written words. Paragraphs get hewed and sculpted. Ideas get carried into concrete expressions. And…blam. There we are, ready for Posterity. Let history say what it will about our toil this Freshman term. We are writers and we take our orders from a higher power: our desire to be heard and our belief in the power of communication. This class is also part of a First Year Learning Community paired with Communications Design: Typography. Its overall name is “The Shape of Language.” COM-D 1127 is a foundation course in typography with emphasis on using type for a range of industry related application–from print to interactive.
