The main purpose of the Master’s Module is to develop a new generation of professionals who are able to imagine, design, build and spread their vision with all the necessary tools to deal with the fluidity of the market. [+]

Masters Degrees in Media and Design. Despite it’s relatively recent discovery, photography has gone through different evolutions changing itself and the world around it. On one side, it has helped us to better understand the many manifestations of reality. On the other side, photography has unhinged our certainties to reveal a metaphysical inner world. With the advent of digital photography, the photographer’s work- from pioneering alchemy in its infancy, to advanced computing today – has undergone a process of democratization that has broadened the basic skill base and raised the level of expectation at the top. To be an exceptional professional photographer today not only requires having technical expertise at shooting and printing but also a broader awareness of the entire creative and production processes. Familiarity with all technological aspects (shooting, editing, post production, presentation, distribution), the different areas and related parties involved are not enough to meet the market’s needs. Creativity and content design are the difference between the role of a person who merely does the work and of a potential creative director. A holistic approach is therefore essential to establish oneself as a leading professional in the industry. CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES The main purpose of the Master’s Module is to develop a new generation of professionals who are able to imagine, design, build and spread their vision with all the necessary tools to deal with the fluidity of the market. More experienced photographers are hired not only as technical experts, but as real creative directors. In this... [-]

Masters Degrees in Media and Design. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH Designers interested in developing their career in a global society should conceive design as a global practice. Day after day, the markets are becoming more competitive and ever changing, while the consumer is more demanding when it comes to quality and shows an increasing interest in cultural, ethical or environmental aspects that traditionally haven’t been properly noticed, until today. This context requires from companies and institutions an understanding of the complex market reality and the discovery of strategies that enable them to satisfy the consumer’s needs and demands, and outstand among their competitors. In the last few years, products (whether they are an object, a dress, a space) are no longer perceived for their physical dimension, but for every single detail surrounding them: they way they are shown (both in virtual and real life), their in-store presence, their packaging, the graphics and their visual communication. The experience of buying, using and consuming is increasingly related to the values associated with a product and the brand it belongs to (intangible values, such as symbols or emotions) that influence customer loyalty towards them. For all this, today we cannot comprehend the conception of a new product, space of service without the involvement and complicity of professionals from different disciplines. Those professionals with a global conception, capable of understanding together languages and ways to work will be able to collaborate with other designers or join multidisciplinary work teams, in addition to...
