Master of Publishing Design: Print and Digital Media

Replacing paper with screens, the increase in sales of publishing products, the proliferation of portable electronic devices, changing modes of access to information... all force the designer to make a continuous review of the languages of visual communication in print media.
For this reason, the Master not only includes the study of different publishing formats, the role of photography and illustration, the principles of composition and typographic aesthetics, but also provides knowledge of the cognitive processes involved in the process of reading within the new challenges of the digital world.

Grafica Futura - Master of Publishing Design - IED Madrid

gráfica futura

grafica future is a company made up of César Ávila, José Moreno, María Rubio and Javier Navarro that develops its work in different areas of graphic design (editorial, signage, graphics for museums and exhibitions, corporate image, websites and apps) and specializes in art and architecture publications.
It particularly values ​​projects in collaboration with architects, artists, curators, editors, photographers and illustrators.


The changes in the past two decades have transformed the way we do things, the tools and skills required and the nature of the work, presenting challenges for design professionals.

Because of this we consider it necessary both to review the content and provide new perspectives on the traditional disciplines of our work (typography, layout, art direction and production, among others), and to open up the spectrum of knowledge that can be useful to address complex editorial projects such as illustration, computer graphics, photography, new media, publishing and management.
