This design course is project based. The student works at thier own pace.
In this course students use Macromedia Flash MX 2004, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator and to design web pages and to create graphics and animations for web page design, as well as free standing animations.
The focus of this class is on the design elements of shape, color, texture, typography, and images as they are applied to web pages (not just bells and whistles!). Students will work on projects that integrate elements such as buttons, navigation bars, and background images as well as animation to communicate creative visual information.
Grading will concentrate on effort and not artistic ability.
