Workshop led by Vincent Jacquier, assisted by Giliane Cachin and Pauline Saglio.
This movie was realized by the second year students in Bachelor Graphic Design during a one week workshop.
All the contents were produced by students from the Bachelor Graphic Design program between 2010 and 2014.
Designing publications (books, magazines, newspapers), producing posters, creating fonts or experimenting with digital publishing – this programme targets students wishing to master the tools and languages inherent in graphic design. Prospective, pragmatic and experimental, this Bachelor course is provided in the framework of the Visual Communication Department, which concurrently offers crossover courses and projects enabling students to acquire multidisciplinary skills (photography, interaction design, film).
Through courses and workshops provided by major actors on the international scene, the students apprehend the various fields of graphic design such as editorial design, typography, illustration, or brand identity and art direction. Involvement in exhibitions, publications or assignments commissioned by institutions provides an actual immersion into the labour world. The students also benefit from a wide range of theoretical courses and multidisciplinary conferences on the ECAL premises.
The skills and projects acquired throughout the curriculum serve to produce a portfolio of the highest professional standards. Whether they aim to become graphic designer, typographer or art director, either self-employed or working for a company, students who train at ECAL have a wide range of opportunities to choose from when they complete their CV.
