Máster en Diseño y Dirección de Arte


In an era when ideas are conveyed through images, the art director becomes the main crafter of messages. The language of typography, video, illustration, art, photography and music merge together, expanding current graphic design practices and boosting visual creation with the efficiency needed to communicate in the current market.

In the very near future every company will require an art director responsible for its aesthetic strategy, to unify its messages and help it connect with the customer as sensitively and directly as possible.

The Master's Degree in Design and Art Direction is divided into two postgraduate courses, the Postgraduate Diploma in Design and Communication Strategies and the Postgraduate Diploma in Art Direction. Its primary aim is to train professionals to have a strategic and global vision of communication, gaining a mastery of the art director’s skills and roles to create and manage projects in the field of visual messages currently expressed through so many disciplines.
