The One Year Course in Total Design is conceived as a transversal course in which a journey is taken through the four main design disciplines: product design, interior design, graphic design and fashion.
It is carried out over one academic year, during which students learn the basic tools necessary for design from the multidisciplinary perspective of a total designer.
Design, projection and communication are three important features of this course, which covers all artistic, conceptual, technical and design aspects through workshops and classes, encompassing all areas and material for the professional practice of design and project culture.
The course can be studied in Spanish or English. Students choosing this option must have a medium-high level of English for admission to the course.
Professional opportunities: fashion designer, graphic designer, product designer and interior designer.
The One Year Course in Total Design is divided into two semesters and is structured as follows:
I. Theory: during the course all aspects of design are covered, comprising all the basic material for creative practice, with subjects like the theory and history of art and the scientific foundations of design.
II. Projects: in parallel with the theory class, different projects are carried out throughout the course. The first cycle begins with the foundations of design, and an introduction to the world of design by means of experimental works.
During the second trimester, workshops are held in the different design disciplines. These workshops, each lasting three weeks, provide students with an opportunity to work with professionals in different fields, carrying out intense creative and project activity with the aim of obtaining knowledge and tangible results in a limited time.
In this way, under the guidance of great professionals, they will become aware of the operation of each area and have an opportunity to go through the different creative and experimental processes involved in a project in a much more realistic way, with the collaboration of a company.
In previous editions, students have worked with companies, designers and studios like MUJI, HOSS Intropia, Peseta, Mecedorama, CisakDalmas, Luis Eslava, Tetra Pak, Skunkfunk, Glenfiddich, VANS, Hendricks, Alvarno, Baruc Corazón, The Art Company and Velcro, among others.
