Learning outcomes of the course unit

The basic mission of the seminar Graphic Design and Photography 3 is to motivate students to realize tangible outputs of their work. Students not only deepen their knowledge of graphics software, but also become familiar with a variety of formats that they can use for own presentation, as well as another medium of visual communication. The result of teaching should be the ability to apply their own visual language also in the implementation of real graphic job, often associated, for example, with gallery operations. While someone consider the cultural poster as an anachronism, it still remains a valid medium for communicating with the public. An important expression aspect of such output is the synthesis of the visual layer with the text message.
