Design 1 introduces students to the vocabulary of two-dimensional design through projects created using both traditional and digital processes. Students will explore elements (value, shape, and line), principles (symmetry, balance, proportion, and weight), and color (hue, saturation, temperature, etc.) while gaining familiarity with design processes and technologies. Students will undertake projects that encourage both lateral and linear thinking, the generation of multiple outcomes, and the refinement of a single outcome. Through critique and discussion, students will learn the vocabulary of elements and principles that constitute a designer's basic language while identifying and articulating this vocabulary in the work they will produce.
