The web designing world is in a very exciting stage at the moment with HTML5, CSS3, Design for mobile devices and Social Media Marketing being very popular, almost re-creating that buzz that web design was a few years ago. Now is a great time to get into web design, and the best way to study these subjects is through our PRACTICAL, face to face & outcomes based classes.

Where other training institutes focus mainly on teaching you the applications, we focus more on the actual techniques. We do however teach you everything you need to know on how to design with a variety of applications, preparing you for working in the web design industry. Our classes will be no more than 8 students at a time so you get personal attention all the way through the course.
