Learn the principles & elements of design fundamentals today

Class Description

In this Design Fundamentals for Beginners Class, you will be introduced to an orientation to digital design with emphasis on the history and the basic principles of digital design using key computer graphics tools. Having the vernacular, knowledge and skill to execute a creative vision is critical to a project’s success especially for roles ranging from project managers to production designers.

In the Design Fundamentals class, you will learn the essentials for all students looking to be successful in the design world.  While many of our other classes at DWC teach you the technical skills of the newest design programs, this class focuses on design principles to ensure that you understand how to answer the most important question of all: “what is good design?“.

Taught by local graphic designers, Introduction to Design Fundamentals is one of our most popular classes to help you stay on top of design trends and apply them to your digital projects.
