Visual Design for UI

    EXSM 3922 is offered this fall:

Visu­al design is a field that has emerged by blend­ing the prin­ci­ples of both user inter­face design and graph­ic design. Learn how to use key design prin­ci­ples such as imagery, colour, typog­ra­phy, and form to enhance usabil­i­ty and improve user expe­ri­ence. You will learn to ana­lyze and con­struct graphic/​visual design using con­cep­tu­al and tech­ni­cal approach­es appro­pri­ate to client and tar­get audi­ence. Apply this knowl­edge to a hands-on project that inte­grates UI and the prin­ci­ples of graph­ic design. Pre­req­ui­site EXSM 3921 and Coreq­ui­site EXSM 3923
