DESCRIPTION
Graphic design used to require fancy software and an extensive background knowledge of design concepts. Now it can be as simple as downloading an app that can remove the background of an image and superimpose the image onto nearly any background we can imagine.
 
Using presentation software that students already know how to use, we can introduce them to the basics of graphic design. This activity specifically works on resizing clip art and arranging layers to create realistic visual scale of the finished image.
 
The goal is to introduce students to digital design so that they can transfer the knowledge to design software.
