DSGN 420: Design Communication and Methods


This course teaches how to translate complex information, extracted from the strategic design process into simple visual solutions. This class will help students create visualization of their ideas through digital aids such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, PowerPoint, Mind map, SolidWorks, Keyshot, etc.

Students who take this class can apply these methods to their future projects, helping them express their ideas to others, by making their ideas more visible, tangible, and real, creating a better emotional connection with their audience. But most importantly, this class will allow students to develop new creative methods in design processes and give back to the design community.

Open to non-majors, with priority given to EDI students.


Permission from EDI program.
