Elective at semester(s) 6, 8, ECTS: 3
The aim of the lesson is to introduce the use of structure and concept analysis for the interpretation of the joint forms of picture and text, to focus on the analysis and use of fundamental software tools in order to create 2d or 4d (including time) optical outcomes, either printed or digital, to work on the essential design patterns and habits of writing.
WEBPAGE STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Throughout the course there is a series of essential context lectures aiming at highlighting the relationships between the text and the icon/picture elements as they are active within time periods.
As a major case study for the ongoing year there is a thorough examination of the active web page of the department in order to identify the core meaning and the purpose of the digital presentation and the possibility of changing or restructuring its fundamental reason.
