JOUR 11 and 21

This course introduces techniques used in design and layout. Our focus is primarily on print production, but many of the skills can carry over to online usage. Students learn to work with the digital desktop using software from the Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3) group of programs. We will be concentrating primarily on InDesign, but Adobe Illustrator and even Dreamweaver may be introduced, and will be available in any case for the student who wants to go “above and beyond.”

This course will be an introduction to layout and design, with a greater emphasis placed on individual projects in the second half of two-course design portion of the journalism program.
