At the Ecole Bleue, product design, interior design and visual communications design are all taught with equal importance. The objective being to enable our graduates to enter the most important design agencies, where a multidisciplinary approach is essential. Global Design is a creative process which allows a business to adopt a coherent and transversal concept to achieve coordinated communication objectives for its brand through its identity, its products, its packaging, its interior design and retail spaces. It is a conceptual thinking which by the diversity of its approaches and tools, increases the visibility of a brand, a service, a business.
The notion of Global Design at the Ecole Bleue, gains considerably in importance in Years 3 and 4. The assignmenst propsed create the link between the three major disciplines :
Product Design, Visual Communications Design, Interior Design
- Product Design
Transversal design skills
Interior design, product design and graphic design are complimentary and inseperable skills, hence the importance of these.
The interior design professional, whilst taking into account the clients objectives, the budget, the site constraints and the legal obligations, plays with the volumes, the colours, the materials and the lighting of a space…
His space and volume work includes every detail, a rational and poetic reflection, searching to create operational, comfortable and subtle places
The product designer is the creator of objects, furniture, lighting… which participate by their functionality, their poetry, their pertinence, their aesthetic, in creating our living and working spaces. The product designer imagines the objects that surround us, considering their functions, materials, their fabrication, their costs…
The graphic designer
The visual communications specialist imagines and creates logotypes, brands, packaging and signage… Innumerable communications supports and identity symbols that require a capacity for analysis, a rich imagination, a technical dexterity and a eye for detail.
