The GRAPHIC DESIGN THEORY AR app was created to enhance the textbook Graphic Design Theory — Graphic Design in Context by Meredith Davis. The app requires the textbook or the image target supplement (included with the app) to work. This app is a companion to the course GD303 Graphic Design Theory + Practice, offered by the Department of Graphic Design and Industrial Design at NC State University.

For step-by-step instructions on how to use the app with the textbook (or with the included image target supplement), please consult the “getting started” section of the app. Enjoy!

This application was developed by NC State University's Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications team (DELTA) in collaboration with NC State's College of Design.
