The course is required of the advertising major. It's very time consuming but fun at the same time. The class is based around creativity and getting your ideas onto paper in a creative way. Its strategic coloring and drawing. Most projects allow you to use the ideas you want to use as long as they portray the main idea.
In this course we learned how to use basic platforms such as Photoshop, Illustator and InDesign. You also gain knowledge of advertising processes such as thumbnails and supercomps. Majority of the course is creating headlines and thumbnails, learning vocabulary and how to use platforms like InDesign, Photoshop and Illustator which are all used to create your final supercomp projects at the end of the semester.

Advice for students:
Be ready to dedicate a lot of time to your projects. They are not hard as long as you follow the guidelines, just very time consuming. You will never have a "week off" of homework, as there are assignments due every week.
