The Creative Process in Graphic Design introduces and develops the methodology of creative thinking and the personal projects of the designer. Throughout the programme, the student will gain knowledge about the basic principles of design, and will receive perceptive and analytical training to enable them to use graphic language as a means to conceive and communicate ideas.

The course takes a cross-cutting approach, covering the visual arts, creativity, communication, narrative and graphic design, to understand the work that goes into the creative professions and contemporary design studies.

As part of IED Barcelona’s Design First programmes, this online course provides the tools for remote working and new methodologies over six modules: Context, Trends + Inspiration, Ideation, Creation, Project + Prototype and Communication.


– Understand what constitutes the creative process in graphic design and visual communication.

– Discover how the great designers create and develop their creative proposals.

– Become acquainted with the steps to follow to gain inspiration, generate ideas, create and communicate them.

– Apply a method that enables creative talent to be fostered and unleashed.


As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) course, students are provided with the necessary e-learning tools to drive collaborative working techniques in the realisation of projects.

The subjects are structured around three axes, to facilitate learning and the practical application of the knowledge acquired:


How to tackle each creative stage and which strategies to employ, following the advice of experts and discovering their experiences when it comes to differentiating proposals and ideas.


What are the most effective tools to develop each stage of the creative process, and the best instruments to foster creativity and teamwork.


Guided by the teacher, in each stage progress is made towards the development of a creative project that solidifies the skills acquired in dominating a method and utilising tools.
