Students will discover design styles through a comprehensive survey of technological breakthroughs, and historical art and design movements. By creating a design history journal of style, through film and lecture, explore the important design thinkers who shape and influence graphic design. This class is ideal for graphic design majors and other majors for humanities credit. Learning about style is jet fuel for your own creative work.
