Virtually all studentts, research workers or experts meet the need to present their work in printed or electronic version. Very often people try to cope with this problem without any preliminary experience. Authors are frequently unaware of serious errors resulting from the intuitive method of preparing presentations. In this course we shall work with letters and principles of correct typography, usage of colors, color space, use of pictures (photographs, graphs, and illustrations), working area, and basics of composition. We shall also analyze how information relates to design.The students will learn different types of presentations and technological preparation. We shall also learn to use Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop (and possibly Adobe Acrobat and PowerPoint). We will deal with PDF and flash formats and their wide use in high-quality electronic presentations

and publishing. We shall then attempt to apply our expertise to create printed or electronic seminar papers. The character of seminar papers will be determined by the students'

practical needs or they will be determined by the lecturer.


Basic experience with the computer work only.
