About the Course

Graphic design is telling a story by using both images and text. With that definition in mind, this course will focus on the textual elements of graphic design. From the history of typography, the difference between type, fonts and text as well as exposure to typography spacing, students will learn the value of selecting the best kind of type and combinations of fonts to get their message across in a visually pleasing manner....

I learned a lot from Dr. Lori Poole and this course. The course is designed well and provides great insight into the graphic design industry, especially for a complete beginner like myself.

Good simple course with good opportunity for designing practice. However, the volumes of the videos are very low in some cases.

Design projects seem cursory and not well devised. Can we truly just use Canva? How does that allow us to learn at all? The professor's many mistakes on the videos made me almost not want to watch them. The narration is truly horrible.

This was very basic and not very challenging. There were very few (and SUPER easy) quizzes and it was clear many students did not spend much time on their capstone project. Overall, an easy skate class.

The course had some useful information , but the assignments and feedback are so disconnected/vague they really don't support each and find them lacking in help learn anything practical.
