This presentation is a basic introduction to the world of graphic design. I made this for my students in grades 5 and 6, but other ages may find it thought-provoking and useful.
The first 10 slides contains information about what graphic design is: logos, product packaging, book covers, posters and more. The slides have information or discussion questions related to the images.
The rest of the presentation features basic tips for graphic design to get your students started on their own projects.
The presentation was made as a presentation file, but then saved as a PDF. Make sure you have the most up to date Adobe Acrobat reader. Open it up full screen and project it for all students to see.
