Playing with Type (formerly Identity and Branding)
In this course, students will experiment with typography by hand and on the computer. By the end of this camp, students will create a portfolio of type-based posters, including an animated poster that comes to life in Augmented Reality without needing any prior graphic design experience. Students will be introduced to design software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects.​​​​​​​

Digital Product Design
This institute equips students to navigate the design process while creating human-centered solutions to promote healthy habits. Campers will create paper and digital prototypes using Invision and design an app interface using Figma.


After taking this course, students will walk away with portfolio pieces that can be used for design school applications.
