Faculty Pat Lally
Prerequisite(s) Design for Communication I (EP)

Through this course, students will learn how to use different software tools to design, implement, and produce a Graphic User Interface. Our efforts will be mostly concentrated on creating web/internet/interactive projects, as these will allow for the exercise of ideas and tools across the entire design spectrum. Students will have a grasp of the essential technology used for web applications: the Hyper-Text Markup Language (including HTML 5) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). You will be introduced to several techniques that will allow you to begin making interactive applications, which include PHP, JQuery and Javascript, as well as looking at user experience and design of apps for smart phone and tablets. The course will also include an introduction to designing and creating Epub formats. Prerequisite: GDS265 Design for Communication I or permission of instructor. Offered fall.
