Dasein Diploma in Illustration

Illustrators today are more than just craftsmen. They define visual languages and styles that traverse geographical and cultural boundaries. As the world evolves, so does the business of illustration. Historically, an illustrator’s artworks are featured in books, newspapers, advertising, on packaging and other printed mediums, yet today, the possibilities are endless. The demand for illustration opens up in animation, web design, interactive media and so much more. In the increasingly competitive environment, there is growing demand for creativity, innovation and uniqueness, and this is where illustrators come in.

Illustration Communicates Faster

If a picture speaks a thousand words, imagine what illustrators can convey. The illustrator defines his or her style in visual languages that cut across the borders of countries and cultures and goes right to the viewer's heart.

Syllabus of Vision

An illustrator today is an entrepreneur of style and vision. The syllabus therefore covers the need to develop a signature style and the importance of self promotion for independent illustrators.

The course has been developed in close connection with industry experts, covering a balanced education of classical art skills with contemporary idea development and new media, and giving you the knowledge and insight to advance in your signature style while improving the inherent artistic aptitude for illustration.
