The Summer Course in Packaging Design teaches professionals how to formally and graphically communicate the features of a given product taking into account social awareness and environmental responsibility.

As markets grow more competitive, the concept of packaging is becoming more relevant and innovation rises a crucial factor in standing out from the competition. Packaging is supposed to not only envelop and transport, but also communicate and make an impact, as well as keeping the product in good condition while respecting the environment.

The content of this course revolves around the key elements in packaging design: branding, sustainability, and volumetric and structural design. Students will also work on developing packaging proposals for companies in various fields (food, healthcare, cosmetics…).
