GCM 220

Graphic Communication Processes 3

In this lab-based course, students will explore halftone and four-colour printing by producing traditional printed and digital outputs such as tablet and online media. Through project-based learning, students will use graphic communications concepts to carry out a communication campaign. Students will develop graphic communication products with consideration of client and end-user requirements, with the expectation that they will demonstrate an appropriate intermediate level of technical expertise. Technologies used include offset, flexographic and digital presses. Finishing technologies including mechanical binding and laminating are used. Students will use printing press simulators and presses to identify and correct press problems.
