In this course, learn to shape your own creative work process, going beyond just a particular style. Practice your vector graphics skills while, more importantly, using this unique course to help you question your work methodology, enhance your projects, and explore new formulas.
Take an in-depth look at what Martin Satí's calls MicroStory, develop a vector graphic based on a story, and learn how to catalog graphic elements to handle them appropriately. But the creative process does not end here. After creating your piece, your work and that of other students will become part of a collective artwork that Martin will oversee building.

What is this course's project?

Create your own MicroStory by choosing a simple story to represent in a vector format and by using the experimental methodology that Martin outlines. But it doesn't end here. As an unconventional course, the final objective is to create a collaborative project called The Magic Woods, including the work of as many creatives as possible. Martin Satí takes charge of uniting all the graphics published by students to build this ambitious experimental project.
What's more, if the participation is active, the project can even be taken to an outdoor or urban location. The event would be documented and exhibited in different media showing: the video, the stories, and graphics signed by each student, with the final montage projected on urban land. As you can see, Martin Satí's creativity knows no bounds.

Who is this online course for?

This course is aimed at people with a graphic design and creative profile. Established professionals or students in the sector who want to enhance their creativity and explore new methodologies or simply creatives who like to experiment.

Requirements and materials

You only need your mind, a notebook, a story to tell, and some basic knowledge of a vector design program like Illustrator (no need to be an expert).
