Many different people can find the value in taking summer courses. These courses can help individuals gain basic knowledge in a subject or expand their understanding of certain concepts. Summer courses typically impart the same amount of core knowledge that courses offered during the regular school year provide, but they do it in less time.
What is a summer course in design studies? It is a program that was created to give individuals background knowledge required to complete a design degree or certification program. In these courses, participants learn the basics of design that are applicable to disciplines ranging from graphic design to fashion. Each comes with its own set of criteria and offerings, and upon completion students are prepared with a proper foundation to dig deeper into the design specialty of their choice.
This summer course provides a foundation that allows students to focus on sharpening their skills when they get into more advanced coursework, rather than having to learn the concepts as they go. This can help them to advance more quickly in their studies.
There are a few different factors that must be considered when establishing the price for this program. The location of the school, average cost of attendance and whether students study in person or online are all different factors that contribute to the price. As such, it can vary from person to person.
The summer course in design prepares students to pursue degrees and certifications in a variety of fields. Each concentration provides a path into a particular career. For example, a graphic design program can prepare individuals for careers in the IT field or business and marketing, while a fashion design program could help students in the arts and fashion. The foundational skills developed through this education have no limits as far as their possible applications.
A summer course in design can be very beneficial to your pursuit of a career in design, no matter what avenue you choose. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Design Immersion Days (DID) is an immersive four-week summer program that introduces high school students to design and architecture. It is intended to inspire curiosity about the world of design, introduce basic design knowledge and critical thinking skills, and familiarize students with the expansive architecture and design culture of Los Angeles. Students get to know the city’s visual, structural, and cultural context through the lens of those most deeply engaged with shaping the cityscape: prominent architects who call Los Angeles their home. Students and teachers enjoy collegial interactions in the studio, in the field on day trips, and in one-on-one mentoring. Students also have private tours of museums, design firms, and galleries. By the end of the course they will have a clear idea of what college-level architectural study is like. Students are exposed to examples of design and modes of production at all scales, from sophisticated 3D modeling techniques to hand-modeling. In the classroom and in the city they explore ways of seeing, thinking, and doing that are essential for anyone interested in pursuing a career in architecture or design. Students learn about a range of basic skills essential to exploring, discovering, and describing design work: freehand sketching, mechanical drafting, computer drawing, physical model making, and computer-based 3D modeling, as well as processes that enable fluid movement between the physical and the virtual realms....

In Product Design course, students learn Italian creativity which produces various good designs, product concepts implied by techniques and shapes, product functions, product redesigning, product usage, and so on. With a specific theme and an already existing product, students analyze its functions, shape and structure. And based on such analysis, students learn to practically realize, improve and/or correct their ideas. Depending on each student’s needs (level of knowledge, personal requests, class period, etc.), we can offer students learning experiences of various kinds of Italian designs from furniture design to other product design.

»DESIGN THINKING« THE MINDSET OF HUMAN-CENTERED INNOVATION Design Thinking is a process for creating elegant user-centered solutions in multidisciplinary teams. But it’s much more than that: it is a mindset — another way of tackling challenges: empathetic and hands-on. Don’t talk, do! Implemented in daily work, the problem-solving potential of Design Thinking finds its expression in the form of a living innovation culture. This is, even more, the case when truly desirable solutions are sought. How this works in detail can be experienced in this workshop. In this two weeks you will experience and learn core competencies for your work in creative and innovative fields. You will go through the whole Design Thinking process multiple times in small teams. It starts with understanding the challenge, doing field research, to find a point of view; ideate on your insights to create prototypes and test your solution with users. You and your team are the most valuable resources. It is important to broach conflicts, create dynamics and make use of the different team competences for the right tasks. Therefore, we give guidance and tutorials full of creative methods — like idea-typing and brain-swarming — which you will use freely and extensively to provoke a lot of ideas. Design Thinking is structured, quick and dirty. It is always time-timed, which enforces quick decision making, in order to push for wild and spontaneous ideas. This mood is perfect to come up with truly innovative solutions for products or services. The goal is to become...
