Barcelona is one of the cities with a larger offer of design jobs and with the most affluence of designers of Europe. Every year, professionals from around the world decide to move to this city to carry on with their studies or jobs, as the combination of career’s opportunities and live-style is more than recommendable.
Besides the rich artistic tradition of the city – with the Antoni Gaudí’s heritage, among others –the growth of a new area located in Las Glorias, devoted to the research, knowledge, new business, etc. is letting Barcelona become a referent place for the innovation and the state-of-the art fashion, with ultra-modern buildings and institutions.
If you are into the design world, you will like to know some schools and universities where you can attend some short-term courses, masters or workshops.
Among them, there is the Massana School, which offers fashion programmes, graphic design, etc; IDEP, the design’s institute of Barcelona; ELISAVA, an associated school of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, specialised in graphic design, that also prepares events like the Thinking Week, which will be celebrated from the 6th to the 10th of February 2012; the Superior Art and Design School La Llotja; or the BAU school.
Moreover, you can check the IED (Europen Design Institute) webpage, which offers really interesting regular workshops. Other smaller groups also organize valuable activities and events, such as the summer workshops of the Folch Studio, the Andreu Baliu’s masterclasses (the next one in May 2012), or the amazing and young group, OFFF Atelier, which is constantly offering workshops and courses.
