About

“Thinking made visual”

Professional roles in the design field are constantly changing. Nowadays, design as a field has to encompass the “old” physical, as well as the new digital, media. More and more companies discover the value of experience design in delivering brand, product and service messages and engaging their customers and users through digital touchpoints. While many experiences are working on multiple senses, almost all of them are delivered through the eye, which continues to render our visual sense the most critical of all.

This course will focus on the critical awareness of the balance between creative, commercial and business considerations, developing visual narratives using different visual tools and graphic elements. You will also develop the ability to develop a specific brief to create research-driven projects and an innovative approach to business.

University of Applied Sciences Europe focuses on your development. That's why we teach in small learning groups and in a friendly and personal atmosphere. We’ll oversee your individual development process and help you define your talents and strengths, while helping you develop your own visual signature. You will be taught by renowned lecturers from the creative industry and study at a campus that is centrally located, equipped with the newest technology (photo studio, VR equipment, print & scan lab, MacPools, etc.) and that is known for its international and English-speaking character.
