In today’s business world, it is necessary to have a solid understanding of how digital media is designed and developed. Beyond simply creating a web page or shooting some video footage, we need to know the audience(s) for a given project, and develop high quality material that generates the right impact.
This course broadly explores the foundations of design and development of digital media through a course-long project. Working in balanced teams, students will rapidly iterate project changes as they incorporate new design and usability understanding. At the end of the course, each student should have a portfolio-ready project.
