    1. Magdy Rizk teaches Art 243: Introduction to Typography, Art 244: Graphic Design 1, Art 306: Motion Graphics, Art 343 Advanced Typography. He believes that an instructor has to be instrumental in students’ understanding of their responsibilities and opportunities as a graphic designer. The world of graphic design is constantly in flux and it is the responsibility of the instructor to bring current ideas and technologies, in addition to historical references to the classroom. Teaching graphic design should foster problem solving techniques and habits that instill a productive and effective work ethic as well as reinforcing fundamental principles and elements of design. In this field, designers tend to elevate technology far too high and give less regard to strong conceptual skills. There must be balance where craft and concept function harmoniously.
