Program Description:

 

The advertising and design industry is changing very rapidly. Web-based graphic design is one of the fastest-growing areas in the field of visual communication. Today’s advertising and design studios rely heavily on computers for tasks that 10-15 years ago were done by hand (or, in the case of web design, not at all).

This program takes full advantage of specific locations within and around London to provide a comparative experience for those interested in a career in advertising and design. We will visit many historic sites that will be investigated on the site and location user experience.

Students enroll in the two courses for 6 credit hours.

Students will learn about the U.S. based poster initiative “Type Hike” and will compare and contrast poster design while looking at the posters and advertisements that are stapled and placed all over Britain. Visits to museums and design studios in London will provide historic and contemporary perspectives. Incorporating design research, methodologies and their own personal approach, students will develop a poster series which will be curated into an online blog site that reflects the research and creativity of the entire class.
