COMD 520 Section 5 & 6 at Pratt Institute


About the course

Offered to undergraduate Communications Design students in their 3rd and 4th year of study at Pratt Institute, this course is designed to teach essential knowledge and skills in the current user experience design and interface visual design. Students learn how to think, plan, and design for digital products by emulating the latest industry practices and tackling realistic problems with digitally driven thinking. At the end of the course students produce a conceptually, structurally, and visually complete responsive web product.

The class ran from August 2016 to May 2018, and is no longer offered under the same title as of Fall 2018. All featured projects will be kept, updated further per students’ requests, and accessible at any time on this website. A huge thanks to all former students of Web Design, COMD 520, section 5 & 6, at Pratt Institute.

Thank you.
