Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication Techniques
Request an intervier at firstname.lastname@example.org
Illustration has become an essential visual resource of the media (on paper, in audiovisual version or on digital support) and so it is a catalyst that collects and provides a contact of the different provenances, concerns, ambitions and ways of doing that coexist in such a diverse sector. The diverse provenance of illustration professionals and the progressive development of new techniques and new supports and means of expression justify the existence of a course that systematises professional practices, teaches skills in traditional and advanced techniques and offers reflections on the role of the illustrator and their relationship with the sectors that comprise the demand (advertising agencies, media, design studios, publishers, etc.).
