Visual literacy is the ability to critically view and analyze images that communicate meaning. In this course, you will learn some of the existing cross-disciplinary theories for viewing and producing images used for communication purposes.
This course will also focus on the practice of design thinking. Development of design thinking skills involves your ability to interrogate the world, to find the real problems underneath the given problems and to challenge what others think. For commercial designers, this must be done with diplomacy, creativity and practicality.
Through analysis and production projects, discussions, and critiques, you will learn to articulate effectively, both verbally and through production, meaning through images.
