Our intensive summer and winter courses over time have earned the reputation of guaranteeing a creative ‘shake up’ to their students and an opportunity to plunge into an extremely interesting and emotion-rich atmosphere where they may forget about their everyday routine. They are mainly intended for practising designers who want to learn from leading professionals and, thanks to direct links with the creative industries, to determine their further pathway and professional development.
Illustration (Winter, 2015)
This is a really intensive course including practical classes and master classes; participants learn about modern trends in drawing and illustration and master the use of new technologies – narrative, decorative, manual and digital. The course helps catalyze professional development and give it a new impetus, get rid of the danger of professional stagnation, to see the works of famous illustrators in a new light and form their own portfolio.
Infographics & Data Visualization
This is a fresh intensive course for designers who can conceive, design and produce effective communication graphics. Information graphics are used increasingly in newspapers, websites, TV news and mobile apps to explain and illustrate complex events and present statistical data.
The course looks into and helps course participants to explore various facets of a graphic designer’s work and gives a broad overview of conceptual approaches to making communication visually effective. During a relatively short period of time students are immersed in the atmosphere of workshops, lectures and master-classes delivered by BHSAD tutors and famous Moscow designers.
