Definition

DeVry developed its Web Graphic Design program to prepare graduates to develop graphic media-web pages, marketing collateral, advertising, instructional material and multimedia projects-by applying a collaborative approach. Working in a variety of areas such as advertising, marketing, technical communications, publishing and training, web graphic designers use software applications to design, illustrate, compile and produce visual solutions for communications, especially for the Internet.
