Course programme outline

The Spinning I.D.E.A.S. series of workshops are keys to professionally designed visuals for presentations (and other visual communication medium). These workshops build upon the S.P.Y. concept extending into the principles of design, creative visuals, and infographics. The teaching methodology includes lecture, participation, experimentation, presentation, and group work. Participants will be working on their laptop computer for the class projects.
