Multimedia careers require you to work with two or more of the following types of media: text, audio, video, interactivity, animation, and pictures.

Careers in Multimedia Web Design

The goal of multimedia web design is to produce a site that uses multimedia to enhance site users' experience. Web designers might use a combination of text, graphics, animated segments, and videos on their sites to entice and entrance users.

If multimedia is used poorly, it can distract from the positive aspects of the website and make users frustrated. Frustrated users probably will not return to a poorly designed site, so it is essential that they are not overwhelmed. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, starting salaries of web designers range from $51,750 to $74,520. They suggest that the career prospects for web designers are favorable.
