This page links you to the third year course on Project skills that I presented with Kelly Neaves.
The aim of this course is to give you the skills that you need to produce a poster or a web site that is arresting, well designed, well written and that can keep the reader’s attention. There is no set text on the subject though if you fancy some general reading then you could try ‘Foundations of Art and Design’ by Alan Pipes (see link below).
We covered four topics and the pdfs of the lectures are hyperlinked to the words. You will need Adobe Reader to view them.
- General Project Management (specially related to Biologists)
- Colour theory (in nature and as applied to people)
- Fonts and ‘the voice of text’
- Text: the need to revise and edit
