The Ecosystem | The Interconnected World Around Us
Technology has changed the way we look and interact with the world around us. Distances and borders do not really matter anymore, as the information tools of the age brings us closer and into a bind that is truly a treasure trove of knowledge, wisdom and progress.

The greatest invention of the last century was perhaps not just the computer, but the intricate system of internet connected worlds that we call The Internet. From its early days of academic and military use to becoming an essential part of our daily lives, the world of the web is truly magical. Equally amazing is the way information is organized and presented on the Internet. From humble pages full of text in the 1970s to full blown multimedia experiences and applications of today, the Internet has come a long way and its poised for a leap into another dimension of high speed connectivity and a whole new level of interaction, mobility and usability.

And it is not just the Internet, but technology today has brought synergy to the mediums of Print, Web, Television, Cinema and Mobile, creating a unique and rich ecosystem that has become an essential part of our lives. As more and more devices, from phones to televisions to even refrigerators, cars and watches go online, we’re all set to witness an information revolution, one that will pave the way for seamless availability of information and knowledge, something that was once the subject of science fiction. Not anymore !

The Opportunity | And lots of it !
The multidimensional media revolution that we’re witnessing also presents itself as a fantastic and growing opportunity for bright young minds of today. We’re witnessing a Cloud revolution on the Internet as more and more desktop applications slip into oblivion. Today, you can access your files, create documents, presentations, spreadsheets, even graphics, and edit videos in a web browser ! To make this happen, technologies such as HTML5, Javascript and CSS3 are rewriting the rules of Design & Development for the Web. And more importantly, all these applications and websites are accessible across a plethora of devices and platforms, from Mobile Phones, to Tablets and even Televisions.

On the Graphic Design side, its no longer a mundane play of text and imagery. Brands are built on great design, be it a logo, or a letterhead or even a visiting card. And its not just about brand development, its also about evoking an emotion rather than disseminating information as it used to be in the past.

So where is the opportunity ? There are tons of job opportunities in the Web Design & Development, Graphic Design & Print industry today and they’re growing exponentially. These fast growing IT/ITES industries are consistently inviting high quality talent and besides jobs, there is an amazing entrepreneurial movement in India that is empowering young minds to startup their own ventures.

Typical Web Designing & Graphic Design Courses ? | No Thanks !
During our research phase, we analyzed the reasons for dearth of quality manpower in the New Media technology and creative space and we realized that though there are many training providers who offer courses on Web Designing, Development, Graphic Designing & Print, almost all of them were getting it wrong. The world today moves at the speed of light and technology is what facilitates this accelerated phenomenon. In such a scenario, we found most curriculums teaching outdated technologies, techniques and basically everything that you should not be using today. Infact, these courses were a perfect example of what NOT to learn if you have to be a Web Designer, or a Developer or a Graphic Designer.

Presenting X1 | Not Just Any Course !
So, in late 2012, we set out to create a unique programme that lives up to the spirit of Frameboxx and we created X1 | A Diploma Certificate like no other. The key skills that you learn in this two year programme are exactly what employers are looking for and we’re focusing on much more than mere employability.

This two year programme is divided into two levels - Level 1 Foundation and Level 2 Specialization. The first part of the programme equips you with fundamental skills that enable you to work as a Jr. Web Designer or as a Jr. Graphic Designer or even a motion graphics artist and a video editor.

The real fun begins in the second year with Level 2 where you get to pick from either specializing in the Web track or the Graphic Design & Print track. Over the course of two years, you graduate from a Jr. level Artist and/or Developer to achieving skills equivalent to a Senior Designer / Software Developer.

And for those who want to scale a notch higher, we even have an optional Level 3 aptly titled Code.Hero() because it takes you through some of the most advanced Javascript based frameworks that are used for making fantastic web and mobile applications.

So, dive down into X1 and see why we’re so excited to bring it to you.
