About this Course

Typography, Image-Making, Interactive Media, and Branding. In each class, we'll start by observing the factors that influence and shape aesthetic outcomes. You'll begin to see how design elements come in to being. Quizzes at the end of each module test your knowledge of concepts, developments and principal players, and a short reflective assignment will give you the opportunity to analyze the key questions designers ask themselves today.

History of Graphic Design is course 4 of 5 in the Graphic Design Specialization.

Graphic design is all around us, in a myriad of forms, both on screen and in print, yet it is always made up of images and words to create a communication goal. This four-course sequence exposes students to the fundamental skills required to make sophisticated graphic design: process, historical context, and communication through image-making and typography. The sequence is completed by a capstone project that applies the skills of each course and peer feedback in a finished branding project suitable for a professional portfolio. The goal of this specialization is to equip learners with a set of transferable formal and conceptual tools for “making and communicating” in the field of graphic design. This core skill set will equip learners for formal studies in graphic design, and a starting point for further work in interface design, motion graphics, and editorial design.
