A digital portfolio is the ideal vehicle to claim one's identity as an artist or designer, and is the easiest way to present a body of work to potential clients, employers, galleries or graduate schools. This course presents how "going digital" allows you to structure and deliver visual information in a concise and accessible manner for maximum impact. Using the popular multimedia software Photoshop, students learn to optimize their images and to manipulate rich media (video, audio, animation) to build a portfolio that can be viewed in a Web browser, or on a portable device. Hand coding techniques (including XHTML, CSS and JavaScript) are introduced and practiced as a means to create an interactive showcase that has become the best way to present a professional identity.
