Continuing Education Course



Logos, Symbols & Letterforms (blended course)


This professionally oriented course focuses on what might be considered the essence of visual communications -- the symbol. Through weekly slide lectures and assignments, students explore a wide variety of considerations involved in developing effective iconography, from reductive corporate logos to more complex logotypes. This course covers such areas as elements of a successful logo, design stationery systems, selecting identity colors, and creating customized letterforms and fonts for logotype or title use. Students can produce their assignments using their own computer or by traditional methods discussed in class. This course is presented in a ten-week blended format including two face-to-face meetings, week 6 and week 10, and eight online meetings. All face-to-face class meetings are held at Otis College. The course’s online modules can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.

Material will be uploaded on Sunday evenings 11:59pm (beginning 2/5/17). Login information will be emailed following student's registration. Enrollment deadline: Monday, 2/6.
