Syllabus

This unit examines graphic design forms and practices for packaging and environmental graphics. Students engage in a mix of theoretical and practical production activities to develop critical and applied understanding of graphic design for three dimensional application. Foundational concepts of photography and studio lighting are introduced and employed for image generation and documentation of packaging and environmental prototypes.

Please note: The Winter Term offering of this unit is only available for students attending the field trip abroad.
