TheMedia Design program is offered by the Macromedia University of Applied Sciences.

About

Using cross-media media channels, multi-layered content must be transformed into visual images and stories, in a way that appeals to the emotions of users and recipients and conveys the message clearly. 

Curiosity, openness and fresh ideas are the hallmarks of a good media designer, as well as artistic creativity and visual imagination. 

And the willingness to think through all facets of the set task, and to develop conceptual solutions, before beginning the design. Lateral thinking is required, especially in cross-media projects.
