Master in Graphic Information Design and Media Branding

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona
Campus Full time 6 months January 2017 Spain Barcelona

The Masters Course in Graphic Information Design and Media Branding intends to tackle the changes in reading methods brought about by the emergence of new platforms and devices and by new reading and writing habits. [+]

Masters in Communication Design in Barcelona in Spain. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN SPANISH In today's scenario, designers are faced with a major challenge brought on by the need to quickly and easily understand excessive amounts of information. In addition to growing quantities of data and shorter processing times comes a constant pursuit for new devices, maps and codes. The Masters Course in Graphic Information Design and Media Branding intends to tackle the changes in reading methods brought about by the emergence of new platforms and devices and by new reading and writing habits. The course aims to explore new paths so as to conceive visual communication strategies with which to render content (information) in a clearer, more efficient and more attractive way on different platforms. The practical possibilities this masters course offers are so vast and (happily) undefined that Graphic Information Design and Media Branding rises as a tool with huge potential for use in today's world. With this in mind, the end-of-masters project is geared towards a TV channel and the multimedia devices that make up its content and branding. More and more companies and institutions are creating specific Graphic Information Design departments with specialists in the field in order to enhance and improve communication and a better understanding of their products and services. For instance, Barack Obama's US Government Recovery Independent Advisory Panel added Eduard Tufte to its team so that he could apply Graphic Information Design to the prevention of fraud and bad investment of gains, as well as to promote transparency and clarity in the information issued and make the decision-making process easier for US citizens. Objectives The main goal is for students on the masters course to learn how to design visual communication elements containing large amounts of data, create layouts that make content easier to understand and apply those elements to TV and multimedia: the key is to transmit more with less. The priority is to build on the designer's skills and broaden their scope of application. The course focuses on information design bearing in mind conceptual, aesthetic and functional aspects, balancing all three in order to see it as the visual solution achieved after a process of analysing, understanding and organising content. Students focus their efforts on developing layouts that are capable of expressing: visual impact, non-sequential readings, and the designer's aim of drawing the readers' attention and simplifying their reading priorities. The masters programme intends to equip students with a variety of stylistic, technical and artistic resources to render information in a visually attractive and efficient way. The course is divided into three modules: Graphic Information Design and Media Branding. Easy reading means more reading. Methodology The masters programme combines theory and practice in preparation for a final project. Core subjects focus on two major aspects: Content of information: Students build on their skills to conduct research with the aim of gathering, analysing and organising data in order to then create specific content for a piece of communication or device. Visualisation of information: Exploring layout architecture in order to provide visual solutions for content, which is further enhanced by a good grasp of design resources. The knowledge acquired in the core subjects is reinforced with several specific workshops. These workshops speed up the learning process and break away from the routine of the core subjects by providing professional input from a variety of perspectives and through various channels and platforms, where information design plays a key role. The workshops are short and highly intensive, exploring specific topics in great depth. The final project is the focus point of the course, where everything the student has learnt on the masters is called into play. They have to be capable of applying their results in different channels. A good example is National Geographic: It started out as a magazine, then went on to become a TV channel and is now seen as a multimedia phenomenon (magazine, TV channel, web page, app and potentially a theme park, which in turn requires instructions, maps and signage), therefore posing a variety of challenges on several information transmission channels. Information is everywhere in every single field and discipline, and it needs to be organised and represented in a way that proves visually efficient and attractive. This makes graphic information design an essential tool that can adapt to any profession or field, but its success depends directly on the quality and quantity of content, and also on the visual solution created by the visual communicator. Skills acquired As explained in the general objectives, students will learn to: - Develop a method for researching and processing data in order to visualise information (research, theoretical elaboration and critical thinking applied to visual results). - Use writing signs (colour, form and typography) to intensify what the recipient sees and reads, drawing attention by using different equations to make information more visual. - Develop easily understandable layouts that contain large amounts of information and are efficient in terms of visual communication. - Provide a visual solution for vast quantities of information by organising content in an attractive, efficient, functional and aesthetic way using a variety of visual, technical and artistic resources. - Develop the ability to design information in the right setting, with a style that matches its context and is suitable for the target audience. - Apply Graphic Information Design to a TV channel and its multimedia platforms. Methodology The masters programme combines theory and practice in preparation for a final project. Core subjects focus on two major aspects: - Content of information: Students build on their skills to conduct research with the aim of gathering, analysing and organising data in order to then create specific content for a piece of communication or device. - Visualisation of information: Exploring layout architecture in order to provide visual solutions for content, which is further enhanced by a good grasp of design resources.

Master in Global Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona
Campus Full time 6 months January 2017 Spain Barcelona

The aim of the Master in Global Design is to acquire a global vision, open to collaborations with other design disciplines and gain sensitivity and predisposition towards working together with other professionals or join multidisciplinary teams. [+]

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH Designers interested in developing their career in a global society should conceive design as a global practice. Day after day, the markets are becoming more competitive and ever changing, while the consumer is more demanding when it comes to quality and shows an increasing interest in cultural, ethical or environmental aspects that traditionally haven’t been properly noticed, until today. This context requires from companies and institutions an understanding of the complex market reality and the discovery of strategies that enable them to satisfy the consumer’s needs and demands, and outstand among their competitors. In the last few years, products (whether they are an object, a dress, a space) are no longer perceived for their physical dimension, but for every single detail surrounding them: they way they are shown (both in virtual and real life), their in-store presence, their packaging, the graphics and their visual communication. The experience of buying, using and consuming is increasingly related to the values associated with a product and the brand it belongs to (intangible values, such as symbols or emotions) that influence customer loyalty towards them. For all this, today we cannot comprehend the conception of a new product, space of service without the involvement and complicity of professionals from different disciplines. Those professionals with a global conception, capable of understanding together languages and ways to work will be able to collaborate with other designers or join multidisciplinary work teams, in addition to being those prepared to offer a solid professional response, keeping with the demands of the current market. Objectives The aim of the Master in Global Design is to acquire a global vision, open to collaborations with other design disciplines and gain sensitivity and predisposition towards working together with other professionals or join multidisciplinary teams. The course is a way to improve professional profiles that are performing in a particular discipline (product or fashion design, communication, interior design or marketing and business) by expanding their knowledge and skills, and facilitating the contact or even the development of projects within other design disciplines. In some cases, students will also acquire insights and knowledge of their fields of specialization. A chance to stay current in latest trends of their specialities and an opportunity to face new perspective through discussion with lecturers and professional colleagues. Acknowledgement of different project approaches, new work methods; conceptual, technical or material aspects that will make easier to collaborate with other designers or teams. At the same time, their own professional practice will be enriched. To provide an opportunity to research in fields that students have never approached, as well as in hybrid fields, bringing knowledge that will enhance the critical eye turning it a starting point to build new innovative proposals. Methodology Students will work intensively together with the teaching staff in sessions where different typologies will be combined. The curse lecturers, who are prestigious active professionals, transmit the most recent contents from their own everyday experiences. In order to properly develop the learning process of the course and guarantee a global design experience, the study plan has been conceived through the combination of different work methods: THEORETICAL LESSONS Professors will introduce different subjects that will not only provide methodological knowledge but also analyse practices and cases. To reinforce knowledge acquisition, the teaching staff will monitor the development of research and analysis projects through in-person tutorials. TRANSVERSAL TOOLS Students will be trained in using transversal tools that will back the whole design project, regardless of the field they will apply it to. IMMERSIONS IN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES The methodology of IED Barcelona is based on the concept of “learning-by-doing”, by which students consolidate knowledge acquisition through the practice and experience in problem-solving and real professional challenges. With this philosophy in mind, students will be part of intensive two-week immersions in different design disciplines. In the first week there will be conferences, lectures and theoretical contents on the discipline. They will hear the voices of different professionals who will show their own work and offer their perspective on a particular subject related to the discipline. Students will develop their own research project on the topic. Once the theoretical immersion is over, students will go into a practice immersion in workshops where they will develop projects under the monitoring of a professor. During this process, while projecting ideas and experimenting with materials in the search for innovative solutions, they will put the acquired theoretical and technical knowledge into practice. This will enable them to gain in-depth knowledge and boost their personal approach. VISITS TO STUDIOS AND WORKSHOPS The opportunity of an enriching experience: a chance to gain first-hand knowledge about the reality of design, through visits to workshops, shops and spaces that have become benchmarks in design in Barcelona, discussing with designers in their own studios. To be in contact with the real market helps students to relate the contents provided during the Master with the reality of professional practice. MASTER’S FINAL PROJECT As consolidation of the new knowledge acquired during the course, students have to develop a Master’s Final Project, where all the experiences of the course will come together. Working in teams students are required to develop a whole global design process, from research to the final project presentation. This project is based on a real commission and developed in collaboration with a company. Student profile Graduates in any design discipline, architects, visual artists, professionals in the fields of marketing and communication. The Master in Global Design is conceived for professionals and recent graduates interested in developing their career in design projects of global nature with a multidisciplinary and transversal perspective; product, fashion, communication, interior designers or professionals in other disciplines who want to update their knowledge and acquire competences in other design areas beside their speciality. The course is also open to professionals in architecture and visual arts, and also in the fields of marketing, communication or business predisposed to acknowledge tools that enable them to include a global view of design in their previous knowledge. Requirements Applicants for the Master in Global Design should present a portfolio with their work.

Masters in Communication Design in Barcelona in Spain. Master's in Design Research and Experimentation Design in the 21st century needs professionals with trans-disciplinary training, who are capable of working in collaborative processes, and who investigate and understand the world in which they live and the effects of their own activity. The increasing dependence on technological devices, the material dimension of life and the presence of objects with which we interact every day make contemporary design a privileged place from which to think and intervene in the world. For these reasons, this Master’s course is offered as an area for reflection about the very processes of design, but also as an area for experimentation, practice and critical intervention. The principal aim of the Master’s in Design Research and Experimentation is to provide conceptual tools and promote experimental practices for research in design and for a critical transformation of the socio-cultural environments in which we live. This Master’s course emerges as a commitment to the convergence of design as an area for the production of knowledge and research and design as a tool for intervention and social innovation with which to re-think and re-shape present and future lifestyles. The course combines kinds of awareness and methodologies that are peculiar to experimental and collaborative environments such as Medialabs, Fablabs or workshops for artistic creation with the research methodologies of the social sciences, studies in science and technology or cultural studies. In this way, the theoretical sessions are accompanied by practical workshops in the HANGAR production centre, where a working area is permanently available for the students. GENERAL AIMS OF THE TRAINING To train professionals capable of carrying out projects of research and experimentation in design resulting in critical analysis and the creation of objects and devices that can be used in the sustainable transformation of the socio-cultural environments in which we live. Those processes will be made possible by the research methods, the conceptual tools and the experimental practices which arise from the meeting of the social sciences, art and design. Taking its inspiration from free culture and open design, the kind of professional practice which is proposed is intended especially for contexts of work that are heterogeneousº, trans-disciplinary and collaborative. STUDY PLAN The course is composed of five modules which converge into a final project. Module I – The social life of things Module II – Critical and speculative design Module III – Creative practices and methods for research in design Module IV – Digital manufacture Module V - Final Project This Master’s degree course offers a trans-disciplinary tour through areas of teaching, research and theoretical/practical experimentation. The methodology includes classes of theory, lectures and thematic seminars, workshop practical sessions, experimentation stages, working sessions and the accompaniment and tutoring of projects. The course is run as a collaboration between the BAU, the University Centre of Design of Barcelona, and HANGAR, a centre for research and artistic production, together with various projects of research and experimentation in connection with design. Thus, in addition to the classrooms where the theory classes, seminars and lectures take place, areas are also available for practical work and for experimentation workshops. The students also have permanent access to a workshop area at HANGAR, for their personal work and projects. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES The professional application of the knowledge and skills acquired during this Master’s Degree course can be orientated towards different areas, such as projects in laboratories for digital creation and manufacture (Fablabs, Makerspaces, Medialabs, etc.), work in design or architectural studios, cultural and artistic projects, projects of social diagnosis and intervention, or projects for social innovation.

The emergence of new communication channels and new consumer behavior with brands has completely reinvented the traditional creative process and, therefore, graphic communication systems. [+]

The emergence of new communication channels and new consumer behavior with brands has completely reinvented the traditional creative process and, therefore, graphic communication systems.
