Graphic Design: Visual Hierarchy

Students in our "Graphic Design" course worked with the elements and principles of design to show visual hierarchy within their images. Visual hierarchy's function is to give the viewer a focal point to start navigating through important information. Each student applied a different hierarchy strategy to six different designs using the same phrase.

In this visual arts and applied computer science course, taught by Mrs. Katie Schaefer '03, students learn how graphic design plays a role in media, advertising, and design. They rely on design theory and photographic skills as they are introduced to a variety of computer software applications.
