Summer courses are short, often intense classes that are held over the traditional summer break between semesters. They can be used to fill in classes that are missing for a student’s degree or simply to enhance a student’s knowledge.
What is a summer course in visual design? Visual design is the process by which a graphic designer uses visual elements to create usable content in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement on a web page. Different aspects of design pull together to produce a cohesive, attractive web presence that enhances the user’s experience. Visual design is an ever-growing aspect of graphic and web design, and should be one of the cornerstones upon which the web designer’s portfolio rests. It’s the link between a website that is usable and one that is a joy to use.
A summer course in visual design can add much to the repertoire of a web designer. A student will likely find that career and salary opportunities will increase upon completion of the program.
Cost for such a program will vary depending upon the school and the country where the school is located. Online classes might assist the student in keeping costs low and should certainly not be ignored.
Careers in web design will only continue to grow as the world moves toward more virtual communication. Students might find themselves working in any field and on either end of the consumerism spectrum, from manufacturing to distribution to repair and maintenance, and onward. They might be tasked with the whole of a company’s graphic design, or just the website design. Alternatively, they may choose to focus solely on web design through entrepreneurship or work with a small business.
