Undergraduate Courses - Barcelona
The Official Undergraduate Degree in Graphic Design is comparable to a university Bachelor’s degree (240 ECTS) which qualifies students to become designers who are able to achieve effective visual communication and stir up a reaction in their target audience.
Graphic designers work with text (typography), colour and images (photography and video), symbols (logos, images and pictographs) and illustration. Their task is to develop concepts and ideas that can be rendered on paper or other materials, in digital format, online or through audio visual means.
The Undergraduate Degree in Graphic Design was created to produce graphic designers who make a difference, break the mould and instil social values that promote responsible consumption, sustainability and kindness. The aim is to shape enterprising future professionals who work either as freelancers or as an organisation’s art director, creative director or strategic director.
At IED Barcelona, students learn to build on their skills using the project methodology, which means learning by doing. They are given real projects in every subject, including composition, colour, typography, corporate identity, art direction, publishing design, photography, video, packaging, digital design for websites or apps, signage, animation and virtual reality. The course follows a very customised learning approach, with no more than 20 students per class and the most cutting‑edge technology.
