Learning outcomes of the course unit

In the last year of study, Graphic Design and Photography 8 represents a kind of support platform for the implementation of the final photographic publication, which is part of the master's thesis at the end of the semester. Teaching is mostly in the form of individual consultations on projects in progress. Specific problems of graphic design and general concept of publication are solved. Appropriate material for production, suitable reproduction technique and form of binding are sought. The aim is to produce a real book that helps to articulate the author's artistic attitudes.
