The Summer Course in Sports Product Design teaches designers more about the street sport industry, which includes its scenarios, products, accessories, graphics and future strategies in terms of development and innovation.

Sport has come to mean so much more than just exercise and has become part of our daily lives and activity. The rise in sport popularity explains a growing demand for simple, functional, creative and technical gear.

Therefore, the course tackles design in this field from a theoretical and practical perspective on an individual and group basis. This includes conceiving a project and carrying it out throughout the course. It will also involve a series of presentations, master classes, workshops and visits to major icons in the sector.
