Foundations 2D Design I
2D Design I FTDN.121
This course is a structured, cumulative approach to the elements and principles of two-dimensional design. Organized to created a broad, introductory experience, the course focuses on the development of both a visual and verbal vocabulary as a means of exploring, developing and understanding two-dimensional compositions; visual comprehension and the ability to organize perceptions are key foundational components to the development of problem-solving skills.
The first semester of two-dimensional design is an introduction to the analysis of visual imagery and basics of pictorial construction. the principles of organization and relationship are explored through dialogue, experimentation and the use of a variety of achromatic media, leading to the introduction of color theory and subsequent application of color in design. Concepts are introduced through lectures, discussions, demonstrations, research, assigned projects and critiques.
The course addresses a wide variety of media, tools, techniques, both traditional and technological, and theoretical concepts to facilitate skill development and experimentation with process. Accumulative aspects of the curriculum include the exploration of historical and cultural themes and concepts intertwined with aspects of personal interpretation and experience.
