What is Web Design Course About?

The web design course is designed to enable you to become proficient using advanced level creative technical tools and techniques to build new websites and redesign existing ones exploring layout, visual appearance and usability of a website.

During this course you will be trained in several key areas which also include:  web design, graphic composition, colour theory, design rules, web interface design, constructing home pages and intranet web pages including niche website design. This will all be implemented through a variety of applications across building software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, WordPress, Elementor- a drag-and-drop page builder plugin that replaces the basic WordPress editor with a live frontend editor facilitating complex layout visual creation.
The course is designed to enhance both graphic skills and technical skills as well as CSS.

Please note it is necessary for students to have a domain and web hosting (we help do this for you if needed) so that you can directly apply the techniques learnt as you progress through the course. The steps for registering a domain and web hosting will be covered during the course.

You will need prior working knowledge of graphic design software as a foundation to build on whilst getting to grips with CSS and writing web pages in a combination of codes. Most students pursuing the web design course tend to already come with prior knowledge of graphic design. This is because it is fairly difficult to study web design without understanding the basic principles of graphic design.

Web design focuses on the construction, designing and implementing graphics for a variety of websites.  During the course, you will be taught how to operate and work in web design, graphic design, colour theory, home pages and internal pages with Photoshop, Illustrator and WordPress.

On completion of the web design course, you will have most importantly created your own portfolio as well as a comprehensive syllabus breakdown of certification.
