GRAPHIC DESIGN IS A UNIQUE KIND OF ART. ONE OF ITS MAIN FUNCTIONS IS THE ORGANIZATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE VISUAL SPACE THAT SURROUNDS US.

The design direction in our Academy is represented by the courses Graphic Design Basic, Graphic Design Advanced, UX Design, Web Design, Illustration Basic, and Illustration Advanced.
The basic level program has been designed specifically for those students who are just starting to learn design and for those who are unsure of their technical skills and would like to prepare for an advanced course.
Classes will be divided into practical and theoretical. In small blocks of theory, students will get acquainted with the construction of a visual language system, working with fonts, and the basics of prepress.

Basic practice involves learning to work in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Figma
