COMM 3720 – Graphics Reporting & Digital Design
(3 credits – TG) 2 hours lecture, 2 hours lab
Visualizing media is much more than just type and images on a page or website. Graphics reporting – researching and visualizing complex information and data so it’s accessible to audiences – requires an understanding of visual literacy, mastery of basic design principles, commitment to accuracy, and movement between creative and functional designs. Students in this course blend theory and practice to create effective digital media components such as infographics, page layouts, and interactive web elements. Tools such as the Adobe Creative Suite, basic HTML/CSS, content management systems, and/or various freeware will be used.
Prerequisite: Communications 1720.
