Goals
This course comprehends the basics of graphic design, conceptual thinking Ability to teach a basic level of visuality. As for creating graphical form, line, plane and three-dimensional forming, typographic elements intended to transfer concepts. Coloring work was done using a simple level of graphic elements, typography, objects, color effects on the meaning of the cases examined.
Content
Theoretical research and presentation work. Understanding the importance of the location and description of the design and other disciplines. That make up the process of creative thinking, vision, perception, expression and differences in order to create a new awareness of movement to win. Principles of art and design elements that make up visual language recognition. Plane, respectively, using only the line element, a perspective and three-dimensional creation. The creation of graphical object is perceived as elements of typography and regulations. Typographical arrangements to gain a visual language of abstract concepts. Early-level abstract forms of visual communication and the creation of typographic objects.

Learning Outcomes
1) Learns to create lines and planes, and sizing technique using the third dimension and is able to create graphic elements.
2) Converts graphic objects and abstract concepts visually using typographic elements, so that the first graphic design work exposes the basic level.
3) Understands the effects of typography-object-color on the meaning.
