Hi—if you're reading this, you're probably interested one component or another of modern website design. It could be learning basic, yet impactful principles of layout design, maybe it's how design on the web can be used to communicate your message on a massive scale, or maybe you just want to geek out on cool web tech.

I have compressed my extensive experience in design from the past decade working at a boutique graphic design company, to prototyping and launching sophisticated digital products for CBS Sports, as well as my freelance and agency-owner experience working with a wide variety of clientele spanning many industries. My goal is to teach these principles to you using cutting edge tools and techniques. 

Course Description

Design for Web: Welcome!

Are you interested in design, marketing, or the web? Come learn why creating immersive websites is the future and put your skills to the test—at the end of the semester you'll have a published website online!

Graphic Design Students:
If you are not adding web design into your skillset, you are behind. It's pretty easy to get good at it and not a whole lot of designers have the skill. Plus, if you get good at web you are improving your skills in all mediums.

His real world experience is invaluable as he shows you how good websites are designed and flow. It's a totally hands on class, and you will design, at least one, personalized style guide and website. Great professor.”
