Web Site Design

Web Site Design Training in Toronto

A web site designer works on the client-side and is involved with the graphical presentation (look-and-feel) of the web site. Web developers are able to program or maintain a web site’s database. Rather, the web site designer is mostly involved in the visual presentation of a site using multimedia tools.  The designer is in charge of graphical layout, animation and the interactivity of a website.

The Web Site Design program  provides an integrated approach to web site design by providing instruction in client-side web site design techniques and web site management procedures through converging theoretical concepts and practical applications.
