Course Description

Have you ever wondered what goes into the design of a website or tried creating one but were unsure how to get started? This lecture-based course will show students how to create a visually stunning “responsive” Web design that looks great on all devices and effectively communicates your intended purpose. Topics include: using the five essential building blocks of design to construct a compelling visual appearance; building clear, concise navigation based on information hierarchy; creating an engaging layout using contrast and grids; applying color palettes based on your audience; making effective choices of typography with great type combinations, scale, and spacing; and applying prudent use of movement and animation for maximum impact. The instructor will demonstrate how to build a sample website that applies these principles, using popular website-building tools. Students will also be provided with a wealth of Web design resources. Note: This course provides essential background for any future hands-on course in which students build their own website.  Lecture (plus Questions)
