In this course, students will create their own website using the online portfolio platform, Cargo. They will learn the basics of web design and feature their own photography/image-based work. Introductory HTML and CSS will be taught in order to gain a working knowledge of designing for the web. Students will learn to brainstorm, rapidly sketch ideas, and build paper-based prototypes with accompanying information architecture. The class will also focus on the principles of visual design as they relate to typographic scale, color theory, layout, responsive and accessibility design. The course will culminate in the students’ portfolios going live online.

Students should have a digitized body of work or portfolio (images and/or video) in order to participate in the course.
