Communicating through Graphic Design, Student Book

Communicating through Graphic Design presents one of the leading art careers to high school students in an accessible, engaging format. Written with Kevin Gatta, a veteran Graphic Design instructor at Pratt and owner of an independent studio, this curriculum was developed to address the needs of contemporary graphic design programs, using both digital and traditional media. Students learn fundamental design thinking, drawing, and problem-solving skills that can be applied with either traditional or digital media. Students then move on to specific areas of design, observe and analyze exemplary works from a variety of designers past and present, and create their own solutions to real-world design problems.

•  Digital and traditional approaches to each studio experience
•  Design challenges that reflect actual workplace practice
•  Career profiles of contemporary working professionals
•  Art and design historical references
•  A unique Graphic Design History timeline that shows parallels between the evolution of mark-making to typography and logo design
