You'll create designs & packaging:

Third-year students develop a branding campaign for fictional products. As part of their project, they created multiple versions for various media. The style guide includes information on typography, colours, white space and usage. Mock-ups help to picture how the graphic designs work in different contexts.

Branding is an important element for small and medium-sized businesses. A strong, recognizable brand helps organizations reach their target demographic, differentiating themselves from their competitors.

You'll make websites:

First-year students created websites exploring different schools and movements of design. Along with an intro and bios of major contributors they searched Montreal, took photos of designs inspired by their chosen style and created galleries.

Web development is in high demand in industry. Knowing HTML, CSS and javascript is essential to starting your career in web. Learn these and more in OST: Micromedia.

You'll edit videos:

Third-year students produce a variety of different videos, editing with Adobe Premiere and Audition. Check out some background loops, stop-motion and short scenes.

Video and audio editing skills are important for creating and maintaining modern websites which often rely on video content to communicate. Learn video and audio editing and more in OST: Micromedia

You'll visit the SPA:

Well, not actually visit, but create Single Page Apps like those these 2nd-year students created in a joint project with their French class.

The objective was to create a bilingual SPA with all the requisite features, plus a language switcher, which would promote a park in Quebec. See for yourself:

SPAs are a popular solution for designing interactive websites that are performant & engaging. You'll learn valuable skills & techniques looked for in front-end developers.

You'll program games:

Creating games is a great way to learn javascript programming, user interface & user interaction (UX / UI) as well as how to store user information, like high scores, in a database.

The skills and knowledge you gain with this project are often valued by small and medium sized businesses. The ability to offer users an entertaining and engaging experience is crucial to success.

You'll create portfolios:

Portfolios are important to apply for internships, jobs, further studies and to show the world what you can do. You don't need a portfolio to join OST: Micromedia, but you do need one to graduate.

Third-year students create print and online portfolios with work from graphic design and web development including logos, posters, manuals & reports, websites, galleries, mobile apps and games.

Micromedia students prove to be well prepared for the realities of industry today.

When businesses & organizations were forced to close we were able to complete our "stages" or internships working remotely with the skills & tools we learned in our program.

This is now her third and final stage within our corporation and we are happy to say she is now a full time employee of ours, she is in charge of all marketing and social media. In the short time employed with us she has single-handedly revamped our website, catalogues and many flyers. She is now tasked with working on a e-commerce website and has demonstrated great strides in doing so.
