Illustration Bachelor of Arts*

From pen and brush to digital animation film

Accreditation in preparation due to new bachelor reform.

The illustration course at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) combines the classic arts such as painting, drawing and graphic art with the fascination of current design with the help of modern, digital techniques. Illustrations visualize complex content in newspapers, magazines, infographics, advertisements, posters, websites, and apps. They tell stories in picture books and comics and create entire films or virtual worlds in storyboards and concept arts.

Due to the development of digital media, working methods, requirements, technical workflows and application ranges are also subject to constant change. Nevertheless, the art of drawing is indispensable as a technical basis; and as elementary cultural technique for communication and brainstorming. To illustrate means to invent pictures, to develop your own visual language, to experiment, to think visually and to work. But it also means translating texts into graphic ideas, researching a wide variety of topics, finding adequate solutions and always to stay curious
