Media Design is a course for anyone. You don’t need to have any artistic experience to be successful in this course. This is a course that will give students exposure to current and relevant media trends and experiences. This course is a great starting place for anyone wanting to prepare for post secondary programs such as Design, Engineering, Business, and many more.
In Media Design students will start to think of themselves as content creators. In this course we could create anything, including posters, bus wraps, billboards, packaging, logos and marketing materials, depending on the industry—content creators work at magazines, advertising and marketing agencies, and more. Selecting photos and typefaces, and developing layouts for advertisements, annual reports, brochures, magazines and other projects are also part of the gig. These are skills that students can use in their daily lives.
* Please note - This course is replacing the Applied Graphic Arts and Photography programs. Students who have completed AGA 15 or Photo 10 will register for Media Design 20. Students who have completed AGA 25 or Photography 20 will register for Media Studies 30.
