Start your career in Art Direction

Art directors are dreamers with an overflowing imagination.

Their job is to think of creative concepts and transform them into creative, attractive and effective visual pieces.

They work as a team with a copywriter, who will be in charge of writing the concepts, and use their day-to-day experience to create meaningful, entertaining and useful content for consumers. They are curious and observant by nature, in constant search of references, everything they live, hear and see inspires them, from the last series they have seen to a conversation on the bus.

What will you learn in the advertising and art direction course?

The course is practical and the class projects are real, you can even work on a real campaign and present your ideas to the client. Each course has a duration of 10 weeks and at the end of each of them you will have to hand in the projects you have created for your teacher to evaluate them.

Utilizarás diseño, tipografía, ilustración y fotografía para crear cualquier cosa que pueda contar una historia para una marca, un producto o un servicio. En equipo con un redactor, realizarás una lluvia de ideas y producirás anuncios en revistas, videos, sitios web, anuncios de televisión, acciones… Tal vez incluso tatuajes temporales. Sé creativo, no tengas límites y pásatelo bien trabajando en publicidad.
