During the course, Tyson Evans, interface engineer at The New York Times, and Dave Wright, senior interactive designer at NPR, will show how to build a compelling web design that fosters online storytelling using HTML/CSS and widgets.
This course is designed for beginners, particularly print designers who wish to transition to news design. Those who are at the intermediate level will still find value in the course topics and can work one-on-one with the instructors. The agenda includes:
- The state of news design online
- Understanding the web’s acronym soup
- Making progress independently of your IT department or other restraints
- Hands-on with HTML and CSS
- Web design strategies on news-driven deadlines
Online registration is now open. The fee for the course is $400 for non-members and $200 for non-member students and faculty. Members of The Society for News Design, the Online News Association, the American Copy Editors Society, and the National Press Photographers Association can take advantage of a discounted rate of $300, or $150 if you are a student or faculty member.
