Welcome everyone! I'm looking forward to meeting all my students and helping you become better document designers this semester. Our first day of class we'll begin with a course introduction and think abstractly about design and print. We'll also fire up InDesign and take a first look.

Syllabus: Document Production and Design

This course will give writing students an introduction to layout, design, and typographic principles as well as the technical foundation and practical experience to produce professional documents for print production. Students will work from a foundation in rhetoric and basic graphic design principles and produce a range of document types. In the classical rhetorical tradition, instruction in rhetoric is guided by the so-called five canons of rhetoric: invention, arrangement, style, memory, and delivery.
