Centre for Arts and Technology has taken their popular graphic design courses and integrated them with their web development courses to create a highly desired program by industry professionals.
Graphic Design & Web Development prepares grads to enter the design industry a step ahead of the competition by equipping them with the skills needed to not only create captivating designs, but to run the back end of a website as well.
Graphic & Digital Design focuses on graphic design and digital imaging as well as the publishing aspects of graphic design. Students will learn about typography, branding, illustration, digital assets, print and publication design, branding and advertising.
Our Graphic Design program will give students valuable insight and experience in the industry and assist students in developing their portfolio.
By adding in the Web Development program, students are better equipped to enter the business world. Having the education behind running the back end of a website is a highly desired and sought after skill. This education will provide students with the skills they need for web scripting and programming, integration and database connectivity.
Because of industry standards it is important to integrate these two programs so students can enter the industry with complete knowledge of the industry. To assist in this, students are also prepped for the working world by taking our mandatory Professional Development Program. This program teaches students how to market themselves, draft resumes and network effectively.
Department Head, Christina Baumgartner, had this to say about the Graphic Design and Web Development program: “The industry has changed and designers are finding they’re working in more diverse environments that require a broader knowledge base. Of course, we want projects to be aesthetically pleasing but at the end of the day it’s not necessarily about how beautiful it is - it’s about the solution it provides. Having a wider skillset can help designers tap into unique and creative solutions that can span across multiple platforms.”
In this ever changing industry, it is imperative for Centre for Arts and Technology to prepare their students to the best of their abilities and to give students every opportunity to further themselves in their chosen career path.
