Graduate Diploma in Creative Illustration and Visual Communication Techniques


For the past decade, the Eina School of Art and Design has been training illustrators through its graduate courses in illustration. After nine editions, the specialisation programme in creative illustration and visual communication techniques, which is a reference in the area of higher education in professional illustration, has been established as a graduate certificate.

Eina believes that illustration has become an essential visual resource for the media (on paper, audiovisual or digital support) and thus has established itself as a catalyst to join and link the various backgrounds, interests, ambitions and ways of working that coexist in such a diverse sector.

Eina's graduate courses in illustration (both creative and for children's publications) aim to become a meeting place from which proper conditions may be created for the analysis, experimentation and dissemination of this field. Therefore, the illustration course activities go beyond the classroom and expand to accommodate publications, campaigns, exhibits, participation in contests, festivals and community activities.

This graduate certificate is offered in Barcelona, a city that is a world-wide reference in design and illustration, and within the creative environment of Eina, which was founded in 1967. Eina offers extensive experience in open, innovative education connected to international trends in the area of art and design.

As a higher education centre, Eina's activities follow rigorous academic and context analysis standards, promoting creativity and cultural debate.


The students acquire mastery of both traditional techniques (drawing, painting, etc.) and modern ones (digital resources and multimedia), and also learn to carry out real-world tasks: adapting to the needs and specialist areas of the different types of media currently using illustration as a means of expression.

Students are expected to work both individually and in teams.
