The Graphic Design programme is equivalent to a University degree (240 ECTS).
This programme aims to shape to designers who stand out from the crowd, capable of communicating visually, provoking reactions among the general public and transmitting values associated with responsible consumption, sustainability and solidarity.
The Graphic Designer works with text (typography), colour, images (photography and video), symbols (logos, combination marks, pictograms) and illustrations. Their task is to discover concepts and ideas that are then materialised on paper or using other materials, for example, digital media, via the Internet, audiovisuals, etc.
This Undergraduate Degree in Design enables students to develop real projects in each subject throughout the educational pathway. A highly personalised learning experience, with a maximum of 20 students per class and including the most advanced technologies.
The first year of this degree is focused on acquiring basic concepts of design, culture and project methods. Students learn to dare to create and communicate.
As from the second year, the necessary technological and project managing tools are explored, to communicate simple and effective visual messages. Students concentrate on acquiring knowledge on Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Apple Final Cut, etc. Also, some elements are emphasised, such as typography in an editorial context, narrative language in audiovisual pieces and motion graphics.
In the third year students begin to contact with companies and also to develop more technical and complex projects, with prototypes and real costs implied, in addition to designs for corporate identity, packaging, signage, posters, etc.
During the fourth year students take a compulsory internship in a company and each one chooses a professional profile. Creative management acquires a great relevance through project management. In the end, the Degree Final Project is developed in collaboration with real companies.
The methodology is based on “learning by doing” and fosters interdisciplinarity between the areas of design, fashion, and management for creative industries through workshops and common projects. and yearly projects, as well as the opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary manner on the thesis project.
The program provides a structured core curriculum, providing incremental learning goals to the students throughout the four years, leading to the thesis or degree final project for real companies.
