The role of a web designer is constantly evolving as new technologies progress. In this course, we will explore the roles that are directly related to the aesthetics of web design and how a designer may collaborate with others in the roles of User Experience Designer (UX) or User Interface Designer (UI), or may need to be responsible for some of these roles as well in smaller agencies. In UX design, students will explore how to map the flow of a specific experience, show how to conduct in-person user tests to observe behavior and create wireframes of screens, storyboards, and sitemaps. A UI designer is particular on how the product is laid out, students will learn the intuitive design of pages, ensuring a consistent visual language. They will learn how to create style guides, pattern libraries and apply consistent design language using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
