New Media Design
Audio-visuals and media production
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Design, Illustration, Web Design or similar courses.
Theoretical classes will serve to present and discuss case studies and to prepare practical projects.
Practical classes will serve for the definition, elaboration and development of projects, with feedback from teachers.
This course articulates the multidisciplinary nature of the new communication, editorial and content production paradigms. New media enable the reconfiguration of the roles of editor and designer, and a melting of boundaries, turning the designer more active in the production of communicational contents. The course aims for the student to understand these new roles and practices, promoting the development of competencies to articulate and integrate the multidisciplinarities of photograohy, ilustration, animation and graphic design for the new media, creating new dynamic relations between them.
