About This Class

This class will take students from brainstorming concepts, to sketching ideas by hand and/or digitally, to making those concepts a digital illustration, and finally to refining the layout of a gig poster that represents your personal style as a designer and promotes the bands. We will be using various tools to make things interesting as well as incorporating color repetition and texture. If you're passionate about live shows and are interested in bridging the gap between design and music this class is for you. Students with basic knowledge of typography, color theory, and illustration will get the most out of this class.
