The study of Interactive Digital Media involves planning, designing and producing applications ranging from web sites to kiosks to phone apps. We are visual communicators who facilitate the communication between human and device through our graphic design and programing skills. Animated content is frequently integrated within interactive digital media to help achieve the desired communication goals.
