DSGN 495-39: Visual Storytelling


This course explores a broad definition of “story” and introduces techniques for crafting, visualizing, and sharing in both analog and digital forms. Using the building blocks of story as a foundation, the course will cover the art of graphic facilitation, illustrated journey maps, storyboarding, animatics, and narrative video. Deliverables for the first 5 weeks will be completed by hand, the last 5 weeks will use computers to achieve the desired end result. This course will balance rote practice (muscle-building for rapid visualization), a personal inventory of visual elements and shorthand, and the craft of time-based mediums and narrative framing.

Priority is given to MS EDI students.
