Publishing Design: Print and Digital Media

Master - Madrid

Replacing paper with screens, the increase in sales of publishing products, the proliferation of portable electronic devices, changing modes of access to information... all force the designer to make a continuous review of the languages of visual communication in print media.
For this reason, the Master not only includes the study of different publishing formats, the role of photography and illustration, the principles of composition and typographic aesthetics, but also provides knowledge of the cognitive processes involved in the process of reading within the new challenges of the digital world.
