Basic Elements of Design: Design Principles and Software Overview

https://www.classcentral.com/course/basic-elements-design-13826

Designing for an organization, while requiring technical skill, is not just about knowing how to use a pagination program such as InDesign or manipulate photos using Photoshop. A designer is a visual storyteller, a person who pairs words with images and typography to best convey information to an audience. Good design evokes emotion and presents the news of the day with clarity and the proper tone. A business card, brochure, or website that has good design provides content that is more inviting, more easily comprehensible and is faster to process. Design isn’t about “making it look pretty,” it’s also about content, layout and audience analysis.

Custom Handlettering

https://www.classcentral.com/course/kadenze-custom-handlettering-7614

Custom Handlettering, the second installment in The Complete Typographer program, covers unique and beautiful handlettering used across a wide spectrum of design disciplines. The practice involves drawing letterforms already composed into words, rather than creating characters for an entire alphabet and combining them. Generated for specific uses rather than assembled from a kit of parts, handlettering provides infinite variety for type designers. Students will explore ways to build out digital variations on their handlettered characters.

Tools, methods, and techniques for creating expressive lettering using traditional tools and media such as ink, pen, paint, and brush will be demonstrated. Digitizing hand drawn type into vector designs, and combining handwork with digital design within projects will be explored. 

Digital Drawings: Points, Lines, Curves

https://www.classcentral.com/course/kadenze-digital-drawings-points-lines-curves-8397

In the first course of the three-part program, Fundamentals of Design for Digital Architecture, you will be introduced to rule-based practices and systems used to create infinite and complex designs beyond the limitations of traditional, pencil and paper mediums. 

Assistant Professor and head of UNLV’s Master of Architecture Program, Joshua Vermillion, will guide you through a beginner’s look into rules-based design with Rhino3D and Adobe Illustrator, including how to utilize geometric properties like lines, and curves as the foundation for your digital drawings.

Making Typeface Families

https://www.classcentral.com/course/kadenze-making-typeface-families-7615

Continuing from the previous courses in The Complete Typographer, Making Typeface Families focuses on drawing a complete alphabet from start to finish, then adding bold and italic variations. Students will choose a sample document for which they’ll create a typeface, translate concepts from rough pencil sketches to digitized finishes, and establish cohesiveness in a small trial range of selected characters. Through study of various letterform elements, students will establish how these parts need to come together in a logical way to form a set of related letters and eventually, an entire typeface.

Typography in Graphic Design

https://www.classcentral.com/course/kadenze-typography-in-graphic-design-7616

Typography in Graphic Design covers the role of typefaces as cultural artifacts and how the influences and concerns of the day are reflected in type vernaculars.

Choosing the right typeface for a project and mixing typefaces in a design will be explained in depth.

Quick and easy to produce and distribute, but with almost endless creative possibilities, the creation of animated GIFs is a great way to begin to explore both digital and traditional time based media. The popularity of animated GIFs in social media and advertising, the rise of short form video sharing sites like Vine and Instagram, and the ability to easily create short animations and videos with mobile devices make this kind of ”micro cinema” an important part of our contemporary media landscape. Course will include introduction to creating GIFs with Adobe Photoshop.
