Digital Media Design is one of the fastest growing and highest paying careers in the creative field today. The Digital Media Design program at Davis Tech is employing both creative and technical skills while designing websites, creating digital art, writing code, and working in many other facets of graphic design. Combining classroom experience with real-world projects, this program is designed for students seeking careers in web design and development, graphic design, 3D modeling and animation, and video game design and development.
The program begins with core courses in digital graphic design theory, concept, and application that equip students with the skills and foundations to build upon as they move on to their specialized areas where they will develop more advanced skillsets.
In order to properly prepare our students with the necessary skills to compete in these high tech fields, this program teaches students how to both write code for websites (HTML, CSS, JS, jQuery, PHP, SASS) and utilize industry standard software including:

• Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.
• Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite: Maya and 3ds Max.
• Pixologic: ZBrush

Successful completion of this provides students with entry-level skills for a wide variety of digital media industry employment.
