NEW YORK — The new graphic designer program launched this week by CBS and The Times aims specifically to help millennial designers navigate the creative process.
Its mission is to help young people navigate the world and build careers through a new digital platform called Digital.com, which is launching today, the first time it has launched a new program with the CBS News brand.
The program will offer classes and workshops designed by more than 30 young people each week in New York City.
It also offers an online course called “How to Build a Successful Career” that teaches digital skills such as HTML, CSS, and Adobe Illustrator.
Digital.com has a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and will be run by CBS Interactive, which also owns the CBS television network.
The program has been in the works for years.
In March 2016, CBS launched a digital-savvy digital marketing program called the Designers Studio, which focuses on helping designers and graphic designers work in teams.
That same month, CBS News launched a “Digital Inspiration Lab” that brings together designers, illustrators, business development specialists, and other designers to create graphic design projects.
