Every day we are active users of different kinds of services from the very second we wake up to the second we fall asleep: when we go to the office, to school, to the supermarket or even to a hospital. Very often, we have to face the fact that these services have not been designed keeping in mind the user: you!

Service Design is an established and successful innovation methodology that helps generate exciting and meaningful experiences for people, like you.

In the past decades, Innovation and Design were focused mainly on products. Today, in an economy driven by information technology and intangible goods, the service is the product.

Summer Courses 2019 in Barcelona Spain.

What has not changed over the years is that personal struggle each illustrator endures in trying to express content in his or her work. Developing a personal style is based on two demanding processes: being able to take creative risks and learning a fundamental ability - drawing.

Illustration has been around for a long time and since the appearance of digital programs, this art form (if we can call it that) has diversified itself and helped open the door for new creative jobs in many different areas (Internet, television, publishing, medicine, sciences, newspapers, theatre, magazines, cinema, corporations, advertising, etc).

This course will present the basic concepts and methodologies of Design Thinking and Co-creation through developing a real industry project, including presentations, lect ... [+]

Since the beginning of the 21st century, different fields such as business and engineering have regarded design as an important strategic advantage for innovation and change (organizational, social, technological, etc.).

This is mainly because of the way design thinking processes define and solve current complex design problems such as a new banking business model, adapting current design offering to a digital audience, optimizing the features of an existing product to a new model, or the visual labeling of universal health-related drugs.

Design problems are hard to solve because, basically, they are inherently complex and this complexity increases the difficulty in understanding them and finding reasonable ways to resolve them. The task of designing the outcome at the same time as the context is embedded in design problems. Furthermore, no problem ever exists in complete isolation—every problem interacts with other problems and is, therefore, part of a set of interrelated problems. Because of this interconnectedness of problems, the design problem-solving process has to be a multidisciplinary endeavor—functional disciplines working in close collaboration across functions, instead of looking in narrow silos like ergonomics, finance, human factors, product design, or marketing, to name a few....

The jewelry object is currently evolving and now no longer has to represent a material value or solely an ornamental value.

The Experimental jewelry Design course provides students with a methodology of how to think, how to define, how to represent and how to materialize a new concept in the form of a piece of jewelry. The course employs specialized software to render a piece of jewelry and print it in 3D.... [-]

Innovation. Problem-solving. Creativity. Co-Creation. Customer value. These concepts have a tremendous impact in today’s business strategy. They are the ingredients that spur new growth opportunities, optimize business processes and create strong connections with customers. They are obvious, yet diffuse. We see these words everywhere we look today.

But what do they really define? Are they real? Do they have any real impact on business or are they just a series of trendy words slapped on company slogans, advertisements, and annual reports?

Design Thinking is a human-centric group of work processes and frameworks that help identify, develop and deliver on these concepts creatively and efficiently. Real innovation delivers real results. Results in introducing new product-service experiences to create value in a business, in understanding the changing customer expectations or in expanding existing markets. In essence, developing meaningful design solutions through a design thinking approach, co-created with all stakeholders, results in business transformation. This course is designed for the professional who is looking to better define, shape and implement innovative strategies in their respective ecosystems and deliver higher value to their businesses....
