The school has ongoing collaborations in place with visual communication firms and institutions in the sector, and all of its teachers are working professionals (video designers, graphic designers, illustrators, multimedia animators, brand managers...). Project culture is the leitmotif of the entire learning process, and the school boasts a video and photography studio, a sound workshop, state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and IT workshops.
