The University of Maryland’s iSchool seeks a talented, passionate visual designer to teach our Introduction to Visual Design course in Spring 2019. This graduate-level course prepares our Human-Computer Interaction master’s students for UX careers as well as advanced academic study.
The course provides an introduction to visual design principles, skills and a few current tools (e.g., Sketch, Photoshop, Adobe XD, Framer, etc.). It balances theory (including typography, color, layout and composition) and practice (working with images and asset libraries, designing the look and feel of various interfaces, and creating icons and other graphic communications), with an emphasis on projects and ongoing professional critique. Support for developing a syllabus and refining instructional techniques is available. The course meets one afternoon or evening per week for 3 hours, from Jan 28-May 22. The specific weekly date and time will be arranged with the instructor.
