Digital Foundations: Intro to Media Design with the Adobe Creative Suite

By xtine burrough & Michael Mandiberg

 

Digital Foundations uses formal exercises of the Bauhaus to teach the Adobe Creative Suite. All students of digital design and production—whether learning in a classroom or on their own—need to understand the basic principles of design in order to implement them using current software. Far too often design is left out of books that teach software for the trade and academic markets. Consequently, the design software training exercise is often a lost opportunity for visual learning.

FLOSS Book Sprint: Digital Foundations

Eyebeam and FLOSS manuals got together to host the Digital Foundations FLOSSify book sprint! What does this mean?

It means that a group of artists and volunteers got together to translate the entire Digital Foundations text from an Adobe CS-based book to one that uses nothing but free, open-source software. All of the same exercises, all of the same design principles, but taught in step-by-step detail using free software anyone can download.
