0 learners earned this badge

This badge represents the completion of some introductory graphic design (2D) concepts, principles, and habits of mind that graphic designers deal with on a regular basis. In order to earn this credential, students must complete the scaffolded experiences that introduce them to common graphic design work. A student will create a mood board that represents his or her essence as a designer. Each will also research and select patterns that connect to that essence, create their very own pattern to start creating unique looks, design a logo to represent oneself as a designer, and craft a slogan written in their selected typeface. When combined, these experiences can help to build the foundation that the work of a graphic designer can look like. In completing these activities, the designer will have a much better idea of the discipline. There is an opportunity for a possible trip to Fossil headquarters to share work with professional graphic designers and to get a glimpse into the world of being a professional artist.
