A Hist of Illust and Graph Art

HSTY 2001

Course description

In this course, students examine graphic design as an integral part of the history of visual communication. Graphic design begins in prehistoric times, and can be traced through the beauty of Egyptian hieroglyphics to the evolution of the phonetic alphabet. Students explore the impact and continuing influence of Medieval manuscripts, Gutenberg's printing press, and the 20th century explosion of photography and printing technology as it relates to the contemporary field of visual communications.
