Communication Technology

"Graphic design is a form of visual communication, the act of selecting, creating and arranging marks on a surface to communicate a message. These marks may be letterforms (Typography) or of other media such as illustration or photography. It encompasses the creative work done in many media, such as print, digital media, motion pictures, animation, product design, packaging, and information signs. Graphic design as a practice can be traced back to the origin of the written word, but only in the late 19th century did it become identified as a separate discipline."

In this unit we are going to learn a little bit about printing technology, and create a couple of graphic projects. Students will create a screen-printed T-shirt. Students will also create a CD complete with covers and labels.
