Description This course is an advanced course for Graphic & Interactive Design majors with a Digital Design & Production emphasis or an Interactive Media emphasis. This course along with GID 492A provide students their capstone experience, which culminates in creating, producing, displaying, and presenting a professional-level project in the Senior Showcase. Projects must focus on design, technical, and production skills and knowledge ascertained from previous semesters, as well as experiment and expand beyond the content provided in coursework. The GID 492B course is the final step in this process and has been specifically designed for students to create and produce their capstone project based on their individual proposal plan created in GID 492A. There are weekly project deadlines and presentations to the class, with a focus on professional critique of the aesthetics, functionality, and technical skills of each project piece. In order to be accepted into the Senior Showcase, projects must pass weekly, mid-semester, and end-of-semester benchmarks which include meeting deadlines in the timeline, adherence to all the project specifications defined in the proposal, incorporation of advanced technical and production skills, and professional-level aesthetics and quality.
