Web Design I

COMD 520


Web Design will teach students the funda-mentals that are essential to understanding the Graphic Designer's role in creating and managing a Web Site project. Students will learn the history of Web Design, overviews of the technology and software involved in creation of web sites, usability and accessibility, and a thorough understanding of the process; from a project's conception to the final delivery of visual boards. We will only touch lightly on certain elements of programming. While the focus of the class is to cover what is important to the Graphic Designer, it is important that the code and development behind the curtain not remain a mystery. The more you understand about the capabilities and limitations of the available technologies, the better equipped and more precise the designer will be in approaching a web design project.
