THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

The world of creation is constantly changing. Its disciplines merge and grow and the way they are implemented becomes more and more liberal. The multidisciplinary approach to design is part of a process where the fields in which creativity can be applied are mixed and matched. This is a form of hybrid learning, where students enter an open study plan with the aim of arousing their curiosity, developing their creativity and discovering the various forms of expression in design.

The summer course in Global Design seeks to explore the disciplines of product design, interior design, fashion design, and graphic design to make students understand that design can be based on a common methodology that is then applied to each different sector. Above all, the course focuses on expressing creativity and developing versatility and flexibility. This course is set against IED Barcelona’s multicultural backdrop, which seeks to foster knowledge beyond a specific field and to boost each student’s natural and shared skills, enabling them to learn about other specialties and the things they have in common....

About

While human-centred design is becoming increasingly ubiquitous, designing for situations that question the status quo of what we know (topics relating to culture, identity, religion, or status, for example) doesn’t exactly have a guidebook. Designing for true inclusivity means investigating, understanding, and ultimately, elevating the things that make us different. This class will help you design for those differences by thinking about new ways to plan for discussions and collaborations with real users, explore the art of empathy, and apply those insights into to a tangible solution with a meaningful story. Jump into the belly of the beast, and expect lots of collaboration, experimentation, and learning through doing in this provocative workshop.... [-]
