The CSP (Continuing Study Program) in Graphic Design introduces students to the various stages involved in graphic production and shows them how to handle the different tools used.
Books, magazines, posters, signs, flyers, packaging, labels, explanatory leaflets, product and business logos, websites, online advertising and publicity in outdoor public areas, etc. Everything around us in our daily lives involves graphic design for practical and communicative purposes.
The course simulates a professional studio in the classroom to carry out various projects based on company briefings to apply all the know-how gained by students. The program includes an introduction to the software used in graphic design projects, as well as techniques to present and produce models, prepare quotes and carry out pre-printing, production and post-production processes.
The aim of the Continuing Study Program is to offer an introduction to the different stages in the production of a graphic design and to the basic tools and processes involved in creating the piece or work.
The students will study the essential graphical project development software (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, HTML and CSS), presentation and layout techniques, budget creation and pre-press, production and post-production processes.
The course is based on simulating a professional studio in the classroom where various projects based on semi-real and real briefings drawn up by companies are developed. These exercises serve as practice, lead to an understanding of all the players involved, develop the students’ creative abilities and teach them to deal with the different assignments found in the sector.
As well as theoretical and practical subjects, the Programme includes subjects that foster creativity and train the students in how designers think and plan their work.
This course is designed mainly for those who wish to be introduced to or to know the most important graphic project development tools and an acquaintance with the basic concepts of the world of graphics.
It is intended for designers from other fields, Fine Arts and Audiovisual Communications graduates and students, photographers, editors, advertising executives, proof-readers, journalists, printers, typographers and calligraphers who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of graphic design.
