Online programme.

Websites are an increasingly important part of a business's interaction with their customers.

Through this online programme you can learn skills in front-end web design, to enhance the visual communication of a business, from anywhere you have an internet connection.

This programme is designed to help you develop practical skills as well as a theoretical understanding of a range of digital media and design processes through the exploration of front-end website design.

This front-end website design programme is suitable for anyone new to website design, to jump in and start designing with code - all you need is to be confident with common computer software (e.g. Microsoft office suite).

You will be encouraged to explore a wide range of digital design approaches for researching, developing, documenting, communicating and contextualising your ideas through set project briefs.

What will I learn to do?

  • Develop a basic to strong understanding of design principles for online multimedia applications 
  • Generate creative ideas through research, evaluation and application of relevant design history and theory
  • Create ‘live’ website designs that adhere to responsive website design standards
  • Design and build theme related designs suitable for business ventures, public events or personal portfolio
