  • Overview

    Course Overview
    The capacity of communicating trough images and expressing the relevant aspects of a
    project, from the idea to the final proposal, is a fundamental aspect of design. This
    course is aimed at providing students with representation concepts and techniques that
    are broadly applied in design fields. Based on exercises, talks and workshop sessions,
    the course embraces the ability of students to define and show their ideas by learning
    about the options and features that Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign and Adobe
    Illustrator offer as a powerful suite specifically conceived for design professionals.
    Mandatory for participants to the Study Abroad programme without experience in digital
    representation and visual narrative, the course is also recommended for those design
    students who want to deepen their knowledge of digital tools and learn more about the
    Adobe suite.

    The course approaches also the basic concepts of video editing and production, as
    well as fundamentals of presentation techniques, in order to provide students with a
    complete range of options that they will put into practice in many visual
    communications required by the Study Abroad programme as well as by future design
    projects.
