Design & Digital Fabrication 1D: Sign Making
Product Design: Sign Making introduces industry-standard vector-editing software such as Adobe Illustrator to create products that will then be cut using a vinyl plotter. Students will learn about design, geometry, production, CNC machines, and unique approaches to product design and creation while engaging in an innovative project-based process as they make their own products.
In addition to creating their own vinyl decals and stencils for decorating surfaces, students learn to work hands-on within a production environment. Through this course, students learn about the ways in which objects can be designed and constructed, leading to the creation of their own unique final products.
