Masters In Design And Art Direction

Escuela Superior de Diseño de Barcelona
Online Full time 12 months November 2017 Spain Barcelona

Masters in Management Science. With this program you will learn to visualize creative and convincing ideas, as well as understand who you are addressing, the medium in which you communicate the message, and the emotional load that this message must guarantee. The Art Direction, as an essential part of any commercial communication action, is in constant transformation. The evolution of the media, technology and social networks make it increasingly complex to determine the limits of this discipline. This new environment can confuse the priorities when it comes to becoming a good Director of Art. It is not so much about being the latest in trends or technology, but rather the opposite. From this Master we want to claim why it is so important to know how to tell an idea at a visual level. Why it is basic to understand that behind any communication action there is an intention to influence, excite or convince someone concrete. Why an Art Director can become overshadowed by the superfluous and completely ignore the ultimate purpose of all his work. Art Directors are visualizers of ideas. But for these ideas to be not only creative but convincing, we must understand who we are speaking to, the medium in which we communicate the message and the emotional load that we must guarantee in our messages. The work of the Art Director must respond to this vision. An online Master like the one you are analyzing is the perfect environment to develop such learning. The possibility... [-]
