Contents

In the final year of study, the Graphic Design and Photography 3 and 4 seminar is a kind of auxiliary platform for the realization of the final photographic publication, which is part of the master's thesis at the end of the summer semester. The teaching is mainly in the form of individual consultations on the projects in progress. Specific problems in graphic design and the overall concept of the publication are solved. Adequate materials for production, suitable reproduction techniques and appropriate binding form are sought. The aim is to produce a realistic book that helps to articulate the author's artistic attitude. Instruction in the seminar takes the form of individual consultations, presentations of samples and independent work in programs.
