Digital Design tools--2D or 3--are an important part of a planner's toolkit. Clearly communicating ideas to clients, the public at large, and with managers is all made easier through the production of attractive, effective handouts, flyers, and posters. The same principles, techniques, and tools can be applied to the presentation of GIS data in the form of clear and attractive maps. Intro to Digital Design is a practice based course that introduces the student to Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, ESRI ArcGIS, and Google Sketchup in order to build the necessary skills to produce effective visual communication tools in the form of maps, fliers, and reports.
