Summer Course in Graphic Design
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.
This course is mainly intended for those who wish to start out or gain a knowledge of the major graphic project development tools and the basic concepts of graphic design.
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.
