Abstract
It is crucial for college students pursuing a degree in the graphic design-related field to get as much work experience to help them in their professional work post-graduation. Thus, there is a need to substantially provide graphic design training for students interested in a graphic design position or are currently in one. To meet the needs of these individuals who are pursuing student graphic design positions, the researcher created an online asynchronous module. This online website, Design Building Blocks, provides training in four introductory sections: research & imagery, composition & layout, typography, and color. This usability study measures the navigability and organization of the site and the usefulness of the content. Three iterations of testing occurred with participants and qualitative analysis of information received from the study helped benefit any learning strategies and future modifications to the site.
