1. Graphic Design

This lesson introduces you to different fields within graphic design. Graphic design is communication through visual material and asks how to communicate the brand, message or an idea in a visually interesting and engaging way?

2. Composition

Composition is in the core of visual communication. How to place the elements in your design/presentation so that your idea is in the focus and the visual choices in the image support that focus. This lesson will help you understand and choose the best methods for different compositional purposes.

3. Color

Color choices set the mood of your image. This lesson will guide you to the world of color and show you how to choose the colors to fit the mood and idea of your image.

4. Sketching and Ideation

Designers' work happens before the final product is realized. Ideation processes and ability to sketch, organize and visualize one's ideas is important. This lesson will open up why, when and how you should sketch and how it helps you to develop your design concepts forward.

5. Concept Design

Design visualizations should always have a background idea: a product/marketing/design concept. A strong concept helps you to communicate your idea with a clear focus. In this lesson you will learn how to create interesting and coherent concepts that have layers and great attention value which is supported with the chosen visual style.

6. Visual Concept and Identity

A great visual identity draws ideas from the design concept. Final visuality must communicate the ideas and support the message behind the concept. This lesson will walk you through the visual design process and give you tools to create outstanding and coherent visual presentations.

7. Layout

Layout choices are an integral part of your final presentations. Layout tells the reader in which order and hierarchy you have intended your presentation to be read. Great layout is visual, but doesn’t override the content you are presenting. In this lesson you will learn the tricks to make great layout choices!

8. Logos & icons

Logos and icons are the most concentrated form of visual communication. This lesson observes the logo design principles and that tasks and assignments take the theory into practice. It is not just drawing, but thinking: how to crystallize a brand into a single image?
