September 12, 2011 General 0 Comments

Video games are for more than just slackers. It takes a dedicated team of imaginative designers, programmers and other professionals to bring a video game to life. Video game design is a growing occupation, and as video games grow in popularity more and more companies are seeking employees with design and animation skills.

Video games are a big business. What was once only popular for children has mushroomed into a hobby for people of all ages and demographics. If you love video games and are interested in how they are constructed and developed, a career in game and web design may be for you. Let's take a look at what video game designers and web designers do each day and see how video game design courses can help you begin your career.

Video game designers help create a video game by evaluating the game's levels, finding and addressing bugs, and other tasks that vary from concept to creation. Working in this environment requires a strong attention to detail, a great imagination and obviously some hand/eye coordination. While video games are fun, you won't be able to train to become a video game designer in your living room. Game designer students need to be properly trained in game design concepts in order to compete in this field.

Some common game and web design classes include:

  • Design Elements
  • Effective Web site Management
  • Web Technologies (HTML, Dreamweaver and many more)
  • 3D Modeling & Animation
  • Game Level Design
  • Characters and their Environments

Video game design courses are often the first step for students eager to break into this creative field. Integrated into many other video game design courses, is education on web design. Web designers help develop and create engaging websites and other online media. Both the technical tools and design concepts for web and video game design are taught to help students enter the professional field with a diverse skill set and intimate knowledge of design. Combining these skills with business and English classes is also common and can instill designers with the communication skills needed to flourish in the field.
