Lecture recording

This week's lecture recording is less than ideal. Apologies as there were significant issues with synchronization in the recording. We have posted it as is to a separate page in case you need to review any of the content. Please email Andrew if you need an explanation of any of the items covered.

Future recordings will get better as we sort out the streaming/recording concurrently.

For those who were attending remotely, above is the sketch language piece you would have missed with annotations included. Again, please feel free to follow-up with any questions.

P1 critiques

As part of next week's labs we will be critiquing P1. We will also be offering in-lecture critique on project deliverables to 1-2 volunteers. Please email Andrew or message over the course chat if interested.

This week's reading

Please try to complete readings before the lecture, however, there will be time set aside in each lecture to complete the reading should you need.

This week's reading is: Lupton, Ellen and Phillips, Jennifer C. (2015). "Gestalt Principles (98-115), Framing (116-127)." Graphic Design: The New Basics (2nd Ed). Princeton Architectural Press.

A PDF of the reading is available on Canvas. The reading should take about 17 minutes to finish (3400 words).

Of course should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email Andrew, email Pouria, or message over the course chat and we will respond as quickly as possible.
