Requisite(s): 87539 VC Webmedia 1
This subject provides students with the opportunity to further explore and develop their understanding of visual communication on the web to produce more complex and sophisticated outcomes that are responsive, data driven or interactive. Students are introduced to the fundamentals of responsive web design to create flexible design systems that adapt to the viewing environment in anticipation of the array of devices and screens through which their designs will be viewed.
Traditionally, visual communicators collaborate with a range of professions when producing web media. For instance, when creating a website a designer might employ a programmer to transform their static design into a website. However, many designers now choose to engage with code and programming, expanding their creative practice and exploring new design possibilities that are made available. The aim of this subject is to provide a deeper understanding of the web as a medium and material through knowledge of its underlying technologies.
The subject gives students an opportunity to make an informed decision as to their level of involvement with the underlying code in a web-design process.
Spring session, City campus
