Go anywhere you want on the internet, and you’ll see a world you never knew existed. On your favorite websites, social media networks, streaming video sites, and more, you’ll see logos, fonts, shapes, and design layouts, all of which are the result of hundreds of stylistic decisions that were made to make your browsing experience easy and enjoyable. But nothing on the internet just “appears.” It takes teams of skilled designers and graphics professionals to make it a success. The right designs can communicate messages beyond words. For businesses around the world, something as simple as an icon or logo is enough to create an identification or reputation – sometimes called a “brand” – with their customers.
For these reasons, graphic artists and web designers are often hired to create not just a web presence or effective marketing materials, but to also make a business stand out in their customers’ minds. ICDC College’s web design classes gives you the hands-on training required to produce innovative and memorable designs that businesses look for. Check out ICDC College’s 9 month Graphic/Web Development Fast-Track Diploma or 6 month Computer Graphics/Web Design Certificate below, which can be taken at the Main Campus in Huntington Park. Students will also receive job placement and additional career services assistant.
Depending on the web design courses students enroll in, they’ll learn many of the following topics:
- Microsoft Office®
- Adobe® Creative Suite
- Website publishing
- Internet design
- Adobe Flash®
To help accommodate the needs of working professionals, students may take these programs during morning or night sessions. These courses are designed to teach students the entry-level skills needed to develop their creativity and give them the software knowledge needed to build a long career in graphic design and web development. There are stark differences between the various types of graphic files – as well as which of those are compatible with the variety of web design programs – but a talented and passionate designer will have the ability to produce logos and other creative works that are compatible and meaningful.
Graduates with web design classes have a promising career path ahead of them. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that for graphic designers, the median pay can be as much as $21.22 per hour, or $44,150 per year. For those seeking a web development career, the BLS also found that beginning in 2012 and ending in 2022, hiring is expected to increase by 20%!
