You can see the impact of graphic design everywhere — from book covers to websites to that bag of potato chips you bought. Graphic design is the art of visual communication through the use of images, words, and ideas to give information to the viewers. Design creates culture. The better the design the stronger the influences. When you are in Graphic Design, you are on a mission — a mission to go against any ugliness and boredom around you, and make this world a more beautiful place (at least visually).
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of graphic design, and how to use Adobe Photoshop by working on projects that require creative insight and technical skills.
The growing popularity of 3D modeling and printing has changed how we design. It empowers anyone to turn a compelling idea to actual product you can feel and touch. Even if your interests are in Video Game Making, Robotics, Architecture, Fashion, Automotive, Art, Food, Health or Education, knowing 3D modeling will help bring your vision to life. 3D printing vs. large manufacturing will be a lot like YouTube vs. traditional TV 10 years ago — the winners are not the richest, but the most creative ones.
In this course, you will learn the fundamental of 3D modeling, and how to use Blender 3D and Ultimaker 3D printer, by working on projects that require creative insight and technical skills.
Complex, challenging and ambitious — you think playing video games is hard? Try making one. Creating video games requires many different skills: graphic design, animation, music/audio design, programming, writing, storytelling and game design.
In the old days, it would be very difficult for any individual to create a playable video game. But with today’s powerful computers and all the tools available out there, you can grab a couple friends to create a totally original game, and even make it big. Not saying it would be easy, but with skills, practice and persistence, your team can be “The Beatles” of video game makers.
In this course, you will learn the fundamental of video game design and development, and how to use Unity by working on projects that require creative insight and technical skills.
“[VR] has the potential to be the most social platform ever. Immersive, virtual and augmented reality will be part of people’s daily lives.” – Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook
Virtual Reality replaces Reality, while Augmented Reality enhances the world around us. Both forms of human-machine interaction will be coming more and more a part of our reality. VR/AR can whisk people away to a fantasyland, and help them catch some Pokémons. Both have the potential to disrupt the Social/Games/Film/Music/Advertising/Education norms. So you, let’s be in the room where it happens.
In this course, you will learn the fundamental of making Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality games, and how to use Unity, and tracking/input/sensors/display devices—by working on projects that require creative insight and technical skills.
