Certificate Course in Layout Artist Essentials - For Graphic/ Web Designers

People who are looking for sketching courses to become more innovative, visualized and great designer, for them our course is the only option. ADMEC is the only institute which is offering such type of certificate courses in sketching to enhance your creativity.

Design and applied arts is a concentration within the visual arts field that includes areas such as advertising, commercial design, commercial photography, fashion design, graphic design, illustration and drawing, interior decorating, and many more. Generally speaking, design and applied arts can be described as arts in which objects are designed or created in order to be used rather than simply to be viewed. This course is only available for design media professionals who are having good designing skills in graphics and web etc. This course is useful to enhance their concepts making power and visualization.

Whether it's a magazine spread, a subway poster, or even a Web page, nothing connects or communicates like a great layout. Layout design, the art of what goes where on a page or editorial spread, is a creative challenge for any graphic designer. In this intensive 3-lesson course, you'll tackle advanced-level layout projects that push your design skills to the limit. You'll learn how to build strong foundations for your page design, explore creative applications for lines and shapes, and discover how to break the rules while maintaining the underlying structure of a page. Case studies will analyze carefully selected examples of layout designs considered to be classics of graphic print design. Course projects for graphic designers include a 4-page magazine spread, a book jacket design, and a calendar and for web designers include web templates, web headers, and web ads etc. This course is geared to intermediate/advanced graphic design students looking to stretch out and add distinctive print designs to their portfolios. Principles learned in this class can be applied to any layout design, from print to packaging, the Web, and beyond.
Learning outcomes 2 Months

Structural Foundations

This section explores the structural foundations of layout design how designers use grid systems to unite text, images, and other page elements within an overall visual communication. Case studies explore how the masters constructed fluid designs on firm foundations. You'll learn how elements such as margins, markers, modules, and flowlines help to unify a page or spread. Then you'll examine applications for the common grid systems used by designers: manuscript grid, column grid, modular grid, and hierarchical grid. In the exercise, you'll apply these concepts to the design of a 4-page magazine spread or a web template.

Geometric Design Order

Geometric Design Order is a necessary element in all design and a complement to creativity. It explores creative applications for a geometrical approach to page composition. Classic proportional systems are explored, including such as the golden section, golden spiral, Fibonacci sequence, root 2 rectangle, and the rule of thirds. You'll also investigate how to use lines and shapes as graphic elements to create a sense of order. Lines, curves, circles, angles, bars and squares, and patterns are all explored as possible tools for structuring a layout. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the importance of balance, negative space, and strong focal points. In the exercise, you'll apply these principles to a book jacket design or a web header.

Structure and Deconstruction

This volume looks at ways of moving beyond traditional layout structures and using a more intuitive, experimental approach. Unconventional structural approaches discussed will include contextual framing, page bleeds, layering, proximity, and hypnotic wandering. Type layout concepts discussed will include 3-D type, chunking, text columns, and the vexed question of legibility. Finally, you'll explore some Post-Modern layout techniques: freeform, surreal collage, 3D environments, fragmentation, graffiti, cutouts, overprinting, and conceptual design. In the final project, you'll select an avant-garde technique and apply it to a challenging calendar design project.
Collaborative Project

Students will have to work with client side projects/ live projects and will have a degree of flexibility in choosing the orientation of their project. Students will work as a team and will be jointly responsible for the planning, conduct and outcome of the project, under the supervision of a member of staff acting as a guide. The project will be a significantly-sized production, with the objective of producing an output reflecting a real world need, together with accompanying documentation.

Learning Methodology:

* Implementation would be based on instructional design principles
* Classroom exercises, quizzes, and home assignments
* Continuous evaluation and feedback during the training
* Student has to pass through a very strong assessment system: Project Training, Practical Test, Theoretical Test, and a discussion (Viva)
