Study Design and Multimedia at ITT Dublin

In Design and Multimedia, you’ll complete projects in graphic design, 2D and 3D animation, interactive design and development, visual special effects and interactive video. With the help of the lecturers, you’ll be brought through the relevant projects step by step and assisted with every stage. For example, by working on designing this course website, you’ll get hands on experience not just in the process of web design and development, but also in using HTML, CSS and WordPress.

We have a dedicated multimedia lab where students have full access to the entire Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, editing on programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash Professional, After Effects and Dreamweaver, as well as a host of other programs such as 3D Studio Max to help you make the most of your ideas and creativity. The lab is equipped with state of the art technology such as scanners and top of the range computers monitors. Software is kept up to date and is always industry-standard.
