Graphic Design Certification Capstone

This course is offered in a convenient online format. In this tutorial-style course, you'll experience the process used by professional freelancers and design firms to create professional quality graphic design pieces. You'll come to understand, in theory and practice, what makes good design - in form and space, in color fundamentals, in translating key messages into design and in utilizing typography and images effectively. With the guidance of a knowledgeable, graphic design professional, you will follow a structured design process throughout the course. Upon completion of the project, you will have created your own creative pieces that can serve as the beginning of a professional portfolio. This course is the capstone requirement for SMU's Graphic Design Certificate program and is exclusively available to certificate enrollees who have completed all other coursework before beginning this course.
