Interactive Technology designers develop multimedia web graphics and animation for electronic devices and user interfaces. They are often employed by advertising, publishing and design firms. Interactive Technology students design and create visual graphics that allow for user participation on various digital media, such as websites and cell phone applications. Students determine a client’s needs and identify what the designs should communicate. They select and/or create the visual elements, including artwork and images and then construct the designs using layout software. A final design is then presented to a client or director for approval.♦
