Since 1950s, using grids to organize layouts has become a design standard for effective communication. For many designers today, it is an essential part of the working process that ensures precision, order and clarity. Other designers, on the contrary, prefer off-grid structures in favor of flexibility of expression.
On Day 1, our Workshop will introduce you to the anatomy of Layout Design — from concept development to principles of grid systems, typography, and content organization through Adobe InDesign. You will study the importance of Modernism in the history of graphic design and its relevance today. You will be given a homework assignment, that will include concept research and draft poster development, to complete during one week.
On Day 2, you will work on actual, personal poster development, created to put in practice the new skills, as well as to build thoughtful and meaningful experiences for its audiences.
Working language of the workshop is Armenian, however presentation materials and homework assignments will be given in English. Students must bring their laptops with Adobe InDesign software installed during full participation period.
