Snapshot

Art meets technology to create the gadgets of the future. Have you ever had ideas on how to improve your phone or a game? Interactive media developers often work closely with graphic designers, illustrators, 2D-3D animators and artists, and will have an aptitude for collaboration and team work.

Interactive media developers write, modify, integrate and test computer code for Internet applications, computer-based software, games, film, video and other interactive media. They are employed in computer software development firms, information technology consulting firms, and in information technology units throughout the private and public sectors.

Developers use various tools and computer languages to create the product. For example, they might create a Web page using HTML and CSS; or they may develop animated content or interfaces in Flash.
