Digital Design Professional

Foundation Level (DDP-FL)

The new IREB standard

IREB’s new DDP Foundation Level program is designed to equip those involved in the design and development process of digital solutions with the necessary skills.

The Digital Design Professional certification program is the starting point for a new profession responding to the demands of digitalisation. 

An essential feature of the digital designer's work is to reconcile, in one person, the differences between user needs, economic efficiency and technical possibilities. This combined role makes them the content leader of every digital project. (Source: Bitkom).
