Digital Media Design

Digital Media Design is a one-year certificate program that teaches graphic design, web and mobile design and development, UI/UX, video and motion graphics, illustration, and 3D artistry (sculpting, modelling, lighting, texturing, and animation). The creative economy is booming and technology is playing an increasingly larger role in everything we do from games to movies, apps to animation. In DMD, you will learn the foundational theory, techniques, and technology you need to succeed in this industry.

Graduates from the DMD certificate program can enter into the one-year Digital Media Design — Video and Motion Graphics diploma program or the Digital Media Design — Interaction Design and Development program.

DMD certificate graduates interested in 3D and video game artistry can apply to the two-year Game Development — Design advanced diploma program.

DMD is taught in the phenomenal Exchange District Campus. Check out some recent student samples!
