Course Description

This course serves as a foundation to magazine design and production courses. The page layout software application used in the industry is taught, including its uses and applications as tools for graphic design and production artists, including integration with other graphics-related applications. Instruction, exercises and projects are designed to develop proficiency in using the application through mini-lesson demonstrations, in-class exercises, projects, and lab time. In addition to using the software as a creative tool, students are also introduced to preparing press-ready files for commercial printing.
