Design is an asset of high strategic value within the labor market thanks to its ability to bring innovation to companies in different areas. To be ahead and competitive in a globalized world requires the application of design management with guarantees of success, which is why the designer becomes an essential profile for any organization that wants to stand out from its competitors and boost its economic growth.
Along with design and innovation, creativity is another of the most sought-after talents today. Companies prioritize the hiring of professionals in the creative sector to develop all kinds of projects with resolution and versatility but without sacrificing quality.
Aware of the importance of professions linked to design, innovation and creativity, of the current high demand for experts in these areas and of the new jobs that will be created in the coming years related to them, LCI Barcelona offers a wide academic offer in Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Animation, Video Game Design, Product Design, Photography and Management of Creative Industries.

The School offers a series of free workshops aimed at High School and Higher Level Education Cycle students who study in centers throughout Catalonia. Given the current situation, this academic year 2020-2021 all workshops are conducted in online mode to ensure the safety of participants.
In addition to providing students with the possibility of living a university experience in their professional area of interest, the aim of these activities is that they conceive design and creativity as tools to optimize the quality of life of the individual and society, thus promoting a civic awareness and a spirit of collaboration that will make them grow personally and professionally in the future.
During their training at LCI Barcelona, students learn to anticipate trends, challenge established paradigms and improve the world by taking into account elements such as sustainability and commitment to the environment and society.
Students work by applying these values to their projects according to the characteristics of each sector, while promoting collaborative and research methods with other areas to take advantage of the benefits of interdisciplinarity. Three very clear examples are the collaborations with B·SEArcular, Aflote and LibreGuard.
On the other hand, the LCI Education Foundation offers to the 17,000 students of the network spread over 5 continents the possibility to contribute their time, talent and effort to promote school perseverance, especially in emerging countries where LCI Education is present. The members of the LCI community can grow as citizens of the world thanks to this social participation program that has already carried out projects with Shakira's Pies Descalzos Foundation and Maman Dion Foundation.
