Many companies are facing a demand for creating digital products – especially for consumption on the new generation of consumer products, like tablets and smart phones.
People traditionally working in mediums like Print and Design, who do not have experience in digital workflows, are finding that creating digital products using their existing skills is extremely difficult. The number of workflows, skills sets, training needed, software and deployment possibilities can be complicated and hard to explore.
Mistakes in choosing the wrong workflow or technology can be very costly – especially when people sometimes only realise this after paying for training and trying to implement the solution.
This course is designed for anyone who needs to create digital products. It will take you through all of the possibilities, and explain the pros and cons. It will also explain all the options you have regarding what can and cannot be achieved without relying on scripting or programming. It will talk about solutions from Adobe, and include packages such as InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, PhoneGap and more.
It will explain HTML5 and make you aware of the role it plays in future design, web, print and interactive products. Also, other solutions from companies like JQuery and Sencha will be discussed as well. It will be your chance to get access to specialist advice to plan training, and also see how you can use any existing skills and see what can be produced with them.
Throughout the course there will be an opportunity for people to have a Q+A, and explain the type of work needed, and get advice on possible solutions using existing skills where possible, and what they would need to learn and software they would need to use to realise this.
Anyone of any experience can attend this course, including designers, creative professionals, management, marketing etc. Some Adobe software will be discussed, so it is assumed you are aware of the Creative Suite’s design applications like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash. You do not need to know how to use this software, but it is good to have an idea of how your company may use this software, especially if you work in print.
