The Summer Course in Graphic Design introduces students to the various stages of graphic production, teaching them how to handle the basic tools and about the processes that come after creating an item or work 

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 everyday 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 briefings given by real companies. Throughout the programme, students learn about the essential software they need to carry out graphic projects (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, HTML and CSS), techniques to produce and present models, how to write a quote, and the processes involved in pre-printing, production and post-production.

The aim of the Summer Course is to introduce the students to the different stages of graphic production by giving them a knowledge of the basic tools and the sequence of processes involved in creating the piece or work.

 The course touches on the indispensable software used to develop graphics projects (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, HTML and CSS), the techniques for presenting and creating mock-ups, the creation of budgets and the pre-press, production and post-production processes.


The course is based mainly on simulating a professional studio in the classroom and carrying out different projects based on semi-real and real briefings prepared by companies. These exercises will give practice and help the students to understand all the players involved, develop their creative abilities and handle assignments in this field.

As well as the theoretical and practical subjects, the programme includes others to promote creativity and train the students in the way designers think and plan.
