Digital media is used in the landscape design profession as a tool with analytic, expressive, and representational abilities. The course focuses on introducing landscape design students to digital representational tools used to communicate design ideas for small scale landscape design projects. Students will be introduced to techniques used in AutoCAD, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Sketch Up modeling programs. Digital representation will be used to develop the variety of images necessary to explore and communicate design intentions. Materials for this course will cost approximately $50.

Student Learning Outcomes

The goals of the course are for students to be able to; 1. execute the design process using digital media to communicate design ideas throughout the design process, 2. develop methods for producing digital and hybrid drawings, and 3. reflect on the value and role the drawings play in the communication of design ideas.


At the completion of the course, students will be able to:


• Identify the variety of drawing's role in the design process including inventory and analysis diagrams, illustrative site plans, sections, perspectives


• Utilize hand drawings, AutoCAD, Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design and Sketch Up to produce drawings that clearly communicate landscape design ideas


• Describe the process necessary to produce the variety of drawings used in the design process


• Arrange drawings in a composition that best illustrates design concepts
