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.
Program length: 12 months (20 hours/week)
