Fashion New Media Design
Today’s digital landscape goes way beyond text and image. In an interactive, social, multi-device, multi-platform world, potential abounds. In some cases, a simple blog may be ideal. In others, an interactive element may inspire an audience to visit your site again and again. Or perhaps your message is best served by a social media campaign. In this course, you will design new media, hone your voice and develop strategies to identify and reach an audience. Both content and format will be examined through a communication design lens. Throughout the course you will be expected to share your work with your peers for constructive criticism.
Topics include: Fashion new media design: brand creative in the digital landscape; communication design; portfolio development.
Prerequisite: Introduction to Fashion New Media
Offered Summer 2013
Instructor, Maureen Carter
Fashion New Media Portfolio
As a new media designer, your portfolio is critical to your success. A professional design portfolio should present a cohesive body of work, not a book of art pieces; it should define the expectation of your technical ability and creativity. This course will commence with a review and critique of your portfolio pieces with a focus on producing a professional design portfolio. You will be guided through the revision and refinement of your portfolio. Best practices for broadcast/distribution will be carefully considered. There may be an optional exhibition of students’ portfolios for the course’s finale.
Topics include: Portfolio refinement: execution; audience; broadcast/distribution.
Prerequisite: Fashion New Media Design
Offered Fall 2013
