Graphic Design B

This course is conducted in the Czech language.

Develop your practical and creative skills in graphic design under the guidance of Marta Maštálková.

The form this course will take is directly dependent its participants. Based on individual experience, we will determine the goals we want to achieve during the semester. We will find a common thematic line. We will start at the level of intuition and inspiration and will determine the boundaries within which we will operate.

We are interested in the structure and system of the designer’s work - experimentation and error are the initiators of interesting solutions and the final form thus varies. The course is definitely not about agency or commercial work. We will not be fulfilling an imaginary client’s wishes, but want to find our authentic approach that will give us more confidence to present and defend our work. Every project we undertake often goes through a complicated approval process. That is what we are interested in. We will act as each others’ opponents, have a critical debate and try to stand our ground. In terms of practical tasks, we will explore the different disciplines of graphic design - logo, typesetting, composition, working with format and typography.

  • For this course, we recommend a basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator or the attending of an Adobe course at Scholastika.

  • In the case of Graphic Design Studio A and Graphic Design Studio B, there is no division between beginners and advanced students. The difference between the studios is in the lecturers who run them.

What awaits you in the course

  • From idea to realisation

    the process of designing, preparation for realisation/presentation, a look into production (printery), final output and its justification

  • Basics of typesetting, working with photography, composition, font, colour
  • Design of visual style
