¿Hablas Diseño? offers an intensive summer program that addresses the growing needs of the Latino global market.

  • Courses are available in advertising, design, copywriting, film and video, illustration and media studies.
  • Our faculty encompasses some of New York City's best Latino talent.
  • Affordable housing is available, as well as special panel events on related topics and opportunities to show work to the public.

Now, more than ever, designers, advertisers, and other professionals in visual media need to understand the trends of multicultural markets. In a globalized economy where transnational corporations are common, and media and entertainment groups are spending more time and money to engage the international consumer, the creative professional must recognize the cultural subtleties that will make visual media successful either across a broad spectrum of individuals or within a niche market. Multiethnic and multinational, the Latino consumer is the archetype of a globalized world, making Latinos one of the most sought after audiences for marketers and advertisers, both in the United States and abroad.

The School of Visual Arts ¿Hablas Diseño? program offers a series of summer courses that address the growing needs of these significant global markets. The courses are tailored to the unique cultural voices of Latinos, both nationally and internationally. This means learning how to create innovative and thought-provoking designs, copy, ads, and other media that take into account the nuances of the Spanish language and the specific demands of different communities.

Our faculty includes some of the most talented bilingual creatives and professionals working in New York City. Courses are available for aspiring artists and seasoned professionals in the fields of advertising, branding, design, illustration and marketing.

The next session begins June 1, 2015
EARLY REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 1ST, 2015
