Integrates 2D graphic and 3D computer-aided-design (CAD) as a means to communicate ideas and as a process for design and digital modeling. Digital Design I focuses on graphic design to complement hand drawing skills.  Students integrate layout, typography, image manipulation, and storytelling, as a means to communicate and persuade. Digital Design II, focuses on 3D (CAD) as a means to translate visual ideas into technical and three-dimensional renderings that can be used for rapid prototyping, laser cutting and CNC equipment to produce parts for fabrication. In class projects complement the main Design Studio I/II projects.
