Modern Web Design Demystified with Jesse Arnold and Andy Pratt
This class is a snapshot of what’s relevant and happening right now in web design. Are you working in print and not sure where you fit into the web design world? Learn about the tools available (so many of them are free), best practices for workflow, working with clients, and communicating with programmers.

Here’s what one student had to say about the class: “I’ve already taken several web design classes, but there were still some details that I found confusing. Andy and Jesse did a great job of explaining things like; programming languages and how they interact to form the structure of a site, work flow responsibilities between team members and the blurry lines between them; and agile methodologies applied to work flow.”
