Graphic & Motion Design Courses Master Digital Art Direction / 360 Communication Post-Graduate (2 years after a bachelor programme) Paris in French


This comprehensive digital course enables students who have already completed a course in applied art (graphic design, motion design, web design, illustration, animation) or in web design to further their skills in art direction via a 360° programme covering all aspects of multimedia. The second year is a professional work placement as part of a sandwich course.


This UX Design course aims to train adaptable experts skilled in digital media, able to carry out the graphic design of videos using motion design, broadcast them on websites, tablets and smartphones, and enable them to be shareable on social media. Students learn to master all of these skills in both digital and print.

The course is taught by active professionals who are recognised in their field, and links both theoretical and practical classes.


User experience design has become central for innovative digital projects including websites, mobile applications, software, interactive machines and more. By working at the intersection of graphic design, marketing and computing, the UX designer facilitates the success of complex and ambitious projects.

UX design corresponds to the stage where you question the value that a project brings to usage.

François Vermorel, director of studies for the digital course


Between their fourth and fifth years, students can choose to undertake a placement year. This is an opportunity for them to live an international experience, either as a student or in work placement. In either case, it is possible to apply for an Erasmus grant and to benefit from the Studialis network of schools.


The course in Digital Art Direction is a two-year, master’s-level course accessible to students who have completed a bachelor’s-level course at a graphic design, multi-media or web school, or at university.

The course enables students to obtain a qualification in Digital Art Direction from IDAA-LISAA NSF 322T - level I (France), 7 (EU), listed on the French Register of Professional Certifications (RNCP), by decree of 11th December 2018, published in the official journal of 18th December 2018.

This two-year course at LISAA is the equivalent of a master’s in European classification. Within the framework of international mobility, students should validate their ECTS credits via the Erasmus+ programme.

During the second year, students undertake a work placement at one of the many businesses that are partnered with LISAA. Each year, speed recruiting sessions are organised between professionals and students in order to help them find their professional work placement. These sessions enable students to meet high-quality recruiters such as JCDecaux, Havas, Clemenvilla, Icomene (communication via comics), Pepperclip Studio, My Little Paris and Voodoo.


The quality of teaching at LISAA has led to it being recognised by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. Furthermore, the UX Design course is recognised by journalists at Designers Interactifs magazine as one of the ten best UX Design courses (2017).
