Visual design — the use of layout, color, images, and typography — may be the most important element that attracts people to a website or application. Beyond just aesthetics, it also affects accessibility, readability, and usability. Visual design has its roots in graphic design applied to UX, and can help an organization establish credibility with its audience and points of differentiation among competitors. 

In this class, we will look at elements and principles of visual design. Topics include: the use of color and typography, layout and page organization, and how a “design language” can be used to establish a consistent, overarching style for a website or application.
