About this program

Global Design - Junior

Dive into the world of fashion, product, interior and graphic design in this unique summer experience.

Work as a member of a design team, practice your English, discover exactly how far your creativity can go.

This Global Design Junior Summer Course in English opens the doors to the wonderful world of design and invites you to take your first step developing projects in a variety of fields that may be where your true passion lies. 

You’ll develop a total design proposal for the four fundamental areas of design: Fashion, Product, Interior and Graphic design.

It’s a practical course that gives you hands-on experience, based on the premise that a designer learns by designing. You’ll acquire a cross-disciplinary vision, giving free rein to your imagination as you develop your own creative skills.

Admission requirements

A course tailor-made for young people aged 15 to 18 years old, who want to develop their creative skills while enjoying a unique, cross-disciplinary experience to get a taste of every design specialty, in the very heart of Madrid.

Program content

The course starts by launching a global festive challenge: plan and design a summer music festival. The first part of the course is dedicated to planning the event: the type of music, audience and artists involved. We’ll be working in teams to unleash a collective creative spirit as we get to know each other and the interests we share.

The next Interior Design module introduces us to spatial design as we plan the event, the spaces in the layout, along with the setting and style of the music festival.

In the Graphic Design module we’ll be designing the visual communication for the festival: posters, flyers and the logos; we’ll be creating the products and merchandising in the Product Design module.

In the Fashion Design module we’ll be upcycling as we design outfits for the festival staff, artists and audience. Last but not least, we’ll introduce participants to the festival layout using VR tools.

Why choose it?

It's a chance to get a global overview of the world of design, discover the ins and outs of each specialisation, the differences that characterise each one, and how each particular field relates to the others.

The course is a great way to practice your English and learn some sector-specific jargon in a dynamic environment with like-minded people.

An incredible learning experience right in the heart of Madrid - a bustling, vibrant city - to learn about design and see whether one particular area of design takes your fancy as you’ll have every opportunity to try them all (Fashion, Product, Interior and Graphic Design) during the course. 


  • Develop creative skills in design.
  • Experiment through practical exercises and discover the possibilities offered by each area of design.
  • Obtain a 360º view of the world of design.
