Audiovisual Design

Learn to communicate with images and sound in 2D and 3D. In four years you will be able to conceptualize an audiovisual design project to be able to communicate it in different formats and through various channels: video editing, filmmaking, web storytelling, TV, music videos, documentaries, advertising, immersive experiences, art installations, AR, VR, MR and XR.



The Official Undergraduate Degree in Design has a four-year structure. The first two are made up of core subjects and basic training, where students develop work and tasks from the syllabus.

Final Degree Project in Design. Specialty in Audiovisual Design: "YOLO" by Albert Puig.


At ESDi, we encourage our students to travel through our exchange programs with international universities who are leaders in the different disciplines of design. We have more than 50 agreements with various institutions across Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, including some universities specialized in audiovisual design such as: Holon Institute of Technology (Israel) or Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Finland).

We put our trust in mobility programs, both for students and (teaching) staff, as a way to exchange resources, knowledge and methodologies that will enrich and complete the international experience of studying design at ESDi.

The Final Project is the last educational task to evaluate the knowledge that students have acquired during the course of their studies. It's a project that should make use of skills in planning, conceptual thinking and production. The work is carried out individually, with the help of a tutor. Each specialization has its own specific regulations.
