This course is based on the principles of responsible web design, application of visual composition, and the foundation of web standards code. Using the web standards technologies of HTML5 and CSS3, students will sustainably design and deliver cross- device and platform visual layouts. They will learn the importance of planning and explore the limitations and flexibility of media in terms of message, content, design and technology. Students will also learn how to create structure and to plan and produce flexible grid-based layouts while working with text, images, and video. Emphasis will be placed on learning the responsible use of the cascade within the CSS and HTML suites and the proper use of HTML5 tags and their meanings. The major underpinnings of technical and design considerations will be usability, accessibility, sustainability, and performance through various hands-on-projects.
