International Graphic Design – an opportunity

Pentagram, Landor, Meta Design, and The Chase: these are among the big names in Graphic Design currently working internationally! With globalization, many companies are starting to expand their activities abroad. A recent study from the Association of Graphic Designers (AIGA) highlights that many companies are seeking graphic designers who can understand and represent different cultures. This emphasizes the importance of developing skills that can enable you to work internationally.

For 40 years, ECV has been working to help students understand the international aspects of graphic design through its pedagogy. ECV has decided to go a step further by offering a program fully taught in English, enabling students to meet creative individuals from all around the world.

A 100% English program, based in Paris

Specially designed for foreign students, our 100% English program provides students with the opportunity to pursue their studies in Paris, France, without the language barrier. This 3-year program also offers the opportunity to improve your English language skills, learn specific graphic design vocabulary, and prepare yourself for international project management.

Beyond the language benefits, this program is attracting creative students from all around the world, enabling students to thrive in a multicultural environment. This diversity allows students to immerse themselves in different cultures and cultivate a creative vision of graphic design.
