FOUNDATIONS OF DESIGN
The Foundation Studios are concerned with introducing the basic elements and the principles of two-dimensional design. The aim is developing an understanding of the visual language while improving abilities in abstract thinking and problem solving.
The Foundation Studio courses, taking 8 hours per week each semester, constitute the core of the undergraduate education at the Department of Graphic Design. These courses, which aim to deliver professional education via hands-on practice, are conducted in a studio environment.

I would like to thank Orhan Anafarta for his initiative and invaluable support.
