Course aim

To build upon the digital design skills gained in the introductory courses and apply them to projects that span across multiple platforms and devices.

Course content

Design for Digital Technologies examines the tools and techniques for effective design, and highlights the challenges content creators face when moving from print to digital media. Students will further develop their knowledge of design principles, using industry standard software to produce print compositions. Students will then adapt these skills for digital platforms by designing work for the web, and by learning how to optimise their designs for current and future mobile devices.
