Istituto Di Design A. Palladio

Lecturer

Course Title: "Graphic Design with Adobe Illustrator"
In my course, the student is engaged in different projects that simulate a real job commission to further develop the knowledge of the software along with core design practices like reading a brief, understanding client’s needs, using brainstorming and mindmaps to generate ideas.
Particular attention is put on the pre-production process: the student is encouraged to work with pen and paper or basic tools to generate strong concepts and ideas rather than fancy designs with poor meaning.
