Course DescriptionThis lab-based course builds on the experiences of GCM 120 to provide students with an experiential overview of the complete graphic communications process. Projects will explore concept and design, image capture, premedia, printing, binding and finishing and output to tablet and online formats. Projects include one and two-colour offset, flexographic and digital printing jobs, including wide-format, of student-designed work, and design and production of related web pages and epub tablet publishing. Printing presses and simulators are employed with a focus on troubleshooting.
