About this program

Master's Degree Beyond Packaging

We need to rethink how packaging should be according to the challenges the planet is facing now. Want to join the conversation and change the future?

We are calling Graphic Designers, Product Designers, Industrial Designers, Engineers and creatives that want to rethink how packaging should be according to what the planet needs now.

The Master’s Degree Beyond Packaging by Elisava is a forward thinking one-year programme that wants to shake up the status quo of packaging. In an era in which overconsumption threatens the planet, which materials products are wrapped in often become the symbol of this nonsense, an island of plastic floating on the ocean.

Therefore, we urgently need to redefine our habits and, most certainly, packaging too. We need to consume less and we need to consume better; we need to change the game. This master’s programme envisions giving tools to designers to create a better and more environmental future through design, research, technology and materials.

There is a growing awareness of the threat that the capitalist system entails for life on our planet. On the other hand, the deep crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemics pushes us to prioritize “returning to normality’, to the decisions that caused this current situation without solving any of the preexisting problems.
