Short Lessons for Learning the Graphic Language
Design
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
Modern professional training in design practices in Russia began to appear and develop not so long ago. However, abroad there are whole methodologies that allow the designer's learning process to be more systematized and understandable.

One of the basic knowledge that every designer or artist should possess is, so-called, the skills of the graphic language. Among these skills are drawing rules with a dot, line and spot, rules of contrast and proportions, rules for living and dead lines, etc. (these basic knowledge include different skills developed by artists and designers in the 20th century). The theme of my diploma is devoted to the systematization of this knowledge.

However, in order to create this material, a large "visual basis", examples, on which it is possible to show the basic graphic techniques, is required. For this visual study, works of famous graphic artists, artists, designers were taken. Each chapter of visual research follows a certain chapter from a diploma in Graphic Language Lessons, sometimes modernizing its structure for the integrity of the publication.

Most of the analyzed works ultimately use mixed techniques. Because of this, most of the work can be approached immediately under several sections of this visual study. Therefore, in each chapter, mainly those images that use one method as the main one are used.

Proceeding from all of the above, I want to note that this visual study shows how well the techniques can work together or separately. Many artists consciously understand different graphic tools and combine them in their works. As well as modern designers consciously simplify the system to suit the speed and context. First of all, it is important to understand all these skills and ways of their interaction, and then consciously use them.
