  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
The demands faced by designers are complex and at the same time fascinating, since the variety of media and the high volume of information require not only a steady stream of new ideas and creativity, but also clear conceptual thinking and process-led working methods. The Media 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.
