Postgraduate Degree in Packaging Design

Packaging design is a discipline which is completely different from other design disciplines, since its principal objective is instantaneous recognition. One of the most stable and certain ways of transmitting brand values is through the packaging of the products.

Products, and especially the concepts transmitted through their packaging, are increasingly becoming one of a business’s main resources.

The challenge of packaging design is learning to construct and develop efficient packaging that can create a special link with its audience, have an impact in a millisecond, and generate consumer loyalty.

Successful packaging, as exemplified by major brands, must, above all, communicate consistently.

This postgraduate course is intended for students or professionals who can demonstrate professional expertise and who wish to specialize in the design of product brands and packaging.


Training designers in the process of conceptualization, creation and development of packaging by supplying the necessary resources that will allow them to develop the best creative solution for the objectives they have set themselves.


This postgraduate course is organised in three modules and is completed upon handing in the Final Project.

  • Module I – Packaging design process.
  • Module II – Resources.
  • Module III – Packaging construction projects (5 workshops).
