Modules offered may vary.

We give you an understanding of design for web and multimedia. This involves the production and manipulation of different digital media such as typography and graphics, to produce usable yet creative and visually appealing interfaces.

You are introduced to the design and creation of multimedia content and interfaces. You use a range of software applications to design, create, edit and manipulate different media types.
The focus of the module is on web-based applications, but the approaches and techniques introduced could be applied to the development of other computer interfaces.

Key design issues such as the fundamentals of 'good' design, creatively generating ideas and the relationship between the user and the media provide the theoretical content for designing multimedia content. Technical design considerations including file formats, file size, compression, quality and compatibility are introduced but emphasis is on the practical aspects of using multimedia technology and applications.

The module is assessed through an ICA in two components.
