Brand Design

for students with a background in product design, graphic design, visual communication or scenography

It is essential to consider the brand values when designing communication tools, a new generation of products, a packaging range or an exhibition stand. The role of the designer is to bring out the codes and the brand values throughout the production process by researching the formal or graphic vocabulary, materials and media which best represent the brand. The designer also has to take into account user-experience in terms of the brand, the competition and the technology involved.

Industrial Products

This design approach focuses on industrial design. A wide array of tools used in industry must be used to create products and services that are centered on the user, his environment and his expectations. In this way the designer can use his know-how to help companies design and manufacture products which take into account the needs and expectations of their users.
