Graphic Design in Architecture’s field

The Master in Graphic Design has been in the architectural awards DTF Design the Future, architecture magazine and PFC. The event counted on the participation of Lluc Massaguer, coordinator (together with Anna Fuster) of the Master in Graphic Design in EINA. She was part of the jury that chose the winners of the award for the best PFC statewide. The event took place last 28th February in the auditorium of Cibeles Palace in Madrid.

In this context, Lluc Massaguer explained that “From the Master in Graphic Design in EINA, which is aimed at graduates in other close design disciplines like Photography, Fine Arts, Audiovisual Communication or Architecture, among others, we believe that is very important the build of new professional profiles that combine knowledge and practices of some different fields which can be more or less distant from graphic design as it has been understood until now. It is for this reason that we found interesting the proposal of the magazine DFT to take part as jury on its awards. It shows that, from the architecture in this case, the graphic design is important in its planning and construction process”.

“Design for life”. 99 projects for every day

Those who walk everyday through the subway or at least on Barcelona streets, maybe you’ve already noticed that the Design Museum of Barcelona hosts its first temporary exhibition “Design for Living”. This is a big exhibition that shows the design as an act of mediation between different groups. The designer watches and talks with other people, detects a problem and finds a solution. It is a design not as focused on the author as on the user experience. The exhibition includes 99 innovative proposals that want to fight everyday problems and make easier the daily life of the people. Among all the proposals, we can find a project from two teachers of EINA, Daniel Julià and Anna Fuster, who take part in the exhibition with Rodalia.info, a network that offers real-time information on trains that provide service users via Twitter.
