GD 210 is an introduction to exploration with imagery and technology. It introduces basic critical and interpretative ideas about images in context and with users in mind. This includes fundamentals of both the reproduction and experience of imagery that are particularly relevant to the Graphic Design curriculum. GD 210 also introduces students to technologies relevant to current and future design practice, and nurtures rapid ideation through prototyping techniques. Graphic Design majors only, except with Department Head permission.

GD 210 Image and Tech Tinkering increased to 6 credits (current GD 210 is 3 credits) and effectively replaces D 105 Freshman Studio (6 credits) from the old curriculum. This change moves some of the sophomore studio content to first year students, while integrating developing technology into this early studio experience. This change reflects a wider industry shift in which designers need to quickly and continually adapt to new technology. This kind of adaptation is a skill that needs to be taught to our students from the first year forward rather than saved for later years of study. D 105 was deemed redundant with other instruction and existing GD 210 coursework has been changed to function as an earlier introductory course.
