INFOGRAPHIE

INTRODUCTION TO THE PROFESSION

Computer graphic designers dress up information to give it a look and a visual form. They are the stage directors of the information as they know how to handle the text and the images to formulate a clear and, most importantly, effective message. They are responsible for the artistic design and not just the implementation. They must know how to use their artistic sense for the benefit of the client and how to listen to and incorporate their requirements.
Most areas of graphic and image design involve infographics: advertising, design, architecture, publishing, cinema, etc. It affects all domains that have a need for graphic resources.

THE AIM

To provide future computer graphic designers with knowledge relating to graphic expression, to enable them to prioritize information to make it attractive and enjoyable to read and to integrate immediately into a professional environment thanks to a comprehensive understanding of professional software like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and pre-press, photomontage and compositing techniques.
Proficiency Mac technology allows students to take operational shortcuts and to cleverly resolve problems with which they may be faced upon leaving the course.
