Graphic Design for the Web

Web Designer and Graphic Design for Web Sites Training in Montreal

The introduction of the internet brought forth an opportunity for graphic designers to use their creative talents online. A web designer works on the client-side and is involved in the graphical presentation (look-and-feel) of a web site. Web designers are not expected to program or maintain a web site’s database; rather they are involved in the visual presentation of a site using multimedia tools. They are in charge of a graphical layout, animation and the interactivity of a web site.

This program prepares students with an integrated approach to web site design. Instruction is provided in client-side web site design techniques and management procedures through converging theoretical concepts and practical applications. Areas of study include internet and e-business concepts, hypertext markup languages (HTML 5), a scripting language such as JavaScript™, and web graphic software such as Photoshop® and Dreamweaver®.

Program length: 12 months (20 hours/week)
