Design is an integral part of television. Good design or the lack of it can be seen in the set design, opening and closing titles, and the overall look of a particular program. Designing quality graphics requires an understanding of what makes one image more effective than another. In order to make this distinction, it is necessary to become familiar with the visual tools necessary to examine television graphics critically and then to apply those principles in design.
