IAD 381 Mobile and Responsive Design
3 credits, Spring
Focuses on mobile and interactive design for new and emerging digital environments. Students develop the skills to use media queries and to create flexible layouts, fluid grids, responsive navigation, and scaling images. Emphasis is placed on designing, developing, and implementing a mobile website, a desktop website, and a single responsive version of a web site that can be shared by multiple digital platforms including tablets. Responsive designs are specifically developed to fit screen size, platform, touch interfaces, and the orientation of each digital device. Design aesthetics and typography principles are utilized in accordance with best practices. In-class demonstrations and lab exercises supplement hands-on research-oriented projects. Students integrate strategies for creating robust interactive solutions based upon peer reviews and critiques. Students will need to purchase supplies/materials for this course.
