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


The art director has a key role working directly with an advertiser or within an agency: they are responsible for their client’s image, brand or company in the sense that they come into play whenever this is on show. Students learn how to implement a communications strategy and concepts and then translate these into graphics that can be adapted to all visual, digital or printed media.

Three course options

Students have the possibility to choose between three course options within the digital art direction training:

Three learning methods

Students can choose between three learning methods:

  • Initial: students have the time and means to carry out ambitious and innovative projects. They benefit from a wide choice of teaching modules.
  • Sandwich Course: students benefit from the advantages of a sandwich course work placement. Integrated into the companies that pay them and pay for their schooling, they gain significant work experience.
  • International: students begin their year with a six-month international experience—a study stay or an internship. In both cases, they can apply for Erasmus funding.
