MASTER'S DEGREE IN DESIGN AND VISUAL CULTURE

Ana Luisa Marques

Coordinator

Ana Marques

Description

The Master in Design and Visual Culture sees design and visual culture in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective, where our students do work in several areas such as visual communication, graphic design, illustration, digital interfaces, motion design, photography, typography, editorial design and animation.

The Master's course focuses on a creative, contemporary and multidisciplinary project activity, with an intense practical load accompanied by reflection and critical analysis, thus encouraging "know-how" and the "know how to think ".

During the Masters we intend to prepare our students for the production of their portfolio, self-promotion and career management.

The Factory is..

The organization of special projects of IADE. Its main mission is to leverage the reputation and recognition of the IADE brand. In this organization, where value and knowledge are manufactured, there is a clear commitment to the relationship between students, teachers, laboratories and civil society.

The Factory's projects are essentially defined in three lines of action: parallel manufacturing (development of extracurricular projects); curricular fabrication (projects within the academic context and in collaboration with civil society partners) and fabrication of the future (research applied to the development of projects designed and created from scratch).
