Art 226 / COM 226

Professor Rich Harrington will be teaching a section of ART 226: Advanced Computer Imagery for the Spring ’21 semester. This three credit online course is a stand-alone course or a logical and important follow-up to ART 125: Introduction to Computer Graphics as students implement the knowledge and tools developed in this introductory course.

Harrington has worked for Cartoon Network, Mattel, A&E Home Video, The Discovery Channel andTelebrands as a designer at Yoe! Design, Peekskill, NY. He has also worked for Arnold Advertising, Hill Holiday Connors Cosmopulos, WNEV-TV (CBS affiliate) all in Boston and the partners of Pentagram Design, London. He takes his students through the rigorous but exciting process of brand development and implementation in the context of local businesses.

Students who have taken ART 226 have successfully sold their brand design to local businesses who have enthusiastically implemented a total rebranding program. It’s an exciting opportunity for students to learn the creative process of a multi-faceted series of projects, working with clients, and the aspects of setting up a freelance business, securing projects and billing clients.

The course is cross-listed with Communications as COM226.
