One year Course in Total Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Madrid


The Total Design One Year Course is carried out over one academic year, with a journey though the various disciplines of design and communication. It is aimed at those who wish to begin their training in the areas of product, interior, graphic and fashion design.

Throughout the Total Design Course all the basic theoretical and practical aspects of design will be covered and projectual facets are examined through workshops and lessons, encompassing all the main subjects for the professional exercise of design and project culture.

The IED Madrid is a space for training, research and innovation where students work on creative and multidisciplinary projects, forming part of teams at companies. The academic year culminates with a project in the form of a competition. In this case it will be for the firm Tetra Pak andGlenfiddich. In previous editions, students have worked with companies such as MUJI, HOSS Intropia, Skunkfunk, VANS, Hendricks, Alvarno, Baruc Corazón, and The Art Company.

The Total Design One Year Courses are given in English and Spanish. During the first semester training is given separately in each language, where Spanish students receive English classes and vice versa. In the second semester the course is taught jointly.

The Course in Total Design is aimed at those who want to embark on their design studies.

It is divided into three areas: fashion design, product design and graphic design, which culminate with the production of a final transverse project.

The Course in Total Design will cover all artistic, conceptual, technical and projectual design elements, through workshops and theoretical lessons, so that students learn about the foundations of design.
