Designing a specific Course to enhance Printing Quality of Graphics & Images in lithographic Printing

Adel Mohamed Khodeir, Nawal Salah al-Deen


In a college course about designing visual media such as photography and desktop publishing, it was found that there is a great need to develop a method for raising printing quality; this method should meet the demand of evaluating the student's performance and comprehension after each step in the course plan. This need came from the knowledge of the nature of Lithography Printing as a subject that employs more than color quality or image perception, student are asked to perform the practice of applying the theoretical terms of elements of quality control (dot gain, line sharpness, bleeding, color ink coverage, and etc.) into the technique of using these elements in relation to each other and combining them into meaningful wholes through designs that will apply visual design principles (such as balance, emphasis, contrast, and movement) considering certain criteria such as effective color combination, type style and attention-getting visuals, in these designs which will be addressed to audiences to have certain effect on them (to appeal to target audiences successfully) which mean that they must have the ability to use the design fundamentals in a creative way not just repeat the theory. Just as grammars of language do, visual grammar will describe the way in which depicted elements of the visual design combine in visual statements of greater or lesser complexity and extension.
