We use 3D printers: 3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process that creates a physical object from a digital design. Every 3D print starts as a digital 3D design file - like a blueprint - for a physical object. Trying to print without a design file is like trying to print a document on a sheet of paper without a text file. This design file is sliced into thin layers which are then sent to the 3D printer. Our 3D printer allows us to print in two different materials: ABS and PLA. Here you are some examples:

 

Green Screen Technology: Marbella Design Academy has its very own green screen for video effects. Through the magic of motion video and green screen technology our students are now able to create amazing motion graphics. Interior students can be scaled and transported into their own rendered scenes for video presentations. Fashion students can take their fashion shoots to exotic places and superimpose any digital or virtual background behind the models in their videos. Graphics students can create Hollywood style visual effects for their projects. Marbella Design Academy's new green screen uses a technology known as 'Chroma Keying'. This is the process of isolating a single color in an electronic image and using software to make that value transparent, allowing another image or background to show through instead. If the colour of the subject matches the green background too closely, those areas will also be removed, making a hole through which the background will show. For this reason bright green is used in the film industry as it is not a color traditionally worn by TV or Movie personalities.

What students think about Marbella Design Academy

    Lauriane L'Eplattenier from Switzerland - Fashion Design Graduated Student

    My name is Lauriane L’Eplattenier from Switzerland. I have just graduated from Marbella Design Academy and have been awarded a first class BA Hons Fashion Degree by the Marbella Design Academy's UK partner University in London - United Kingdom. 

    “To me, Fashion is not restricted to only clothing and beauty, but it is all encompassing in creativity and expression. Fashion can define you as a person.

    I have during my study at Marbella Design Academy learnt so much about fashion design and the industry, from freehand drawing to developing clothes collections to the actual sewing and finishing. I have also learnt a lot about Marketing, how to make your own business, fashion show presentation and even jewellery making.

    You study with students from more than 45 different nationalities and cultures. It is a great inspiration with so many different approaches and ideas for collections.

    The students are offered great opportunities to enter in the working world with design competitions and fashion shows during their study. The Fashion design students are encouraged to take part in several real life fashion shows and competitions, such as Malaga Fashion Week, Runway Gibraltar New Designer Competition, Marbella Luxury Week-End, and Marbella Crea & Starlite Festival. I have participated in them all and won two times at Malaga Fashion Week and has also won Frankfurt Style Award. It has been a unique experience  to participate among other creative talents and get constructive feedback as well as advice from the professionals within the Fashion Design industry.

    Our Fashion teachers are great. Always helping us to realise our wildest ideas and build our own style.

    I really liked studying at Marbella Design Academy because we had no creative restrictions. We were given the opportunity to experiment and create exactly what we wanted."

    Hafiz Rosli, 26, Gothenburg - Sweden. Graphic Design, final year (3rd)

    "I chose Marbella Design Academy because the school is multicultural and offers a world class education in a congenial environment. Definitely the weather and live style that comes with it is great too. I have just received some job offers waiting for me when I finish, so I look forward to my future."

    Jessica, from Germany - Interior Architecture Student

    I’m studying Interior Architecture, about to finish my First Year. For me, choosing Marbella Design Academy was definitely not hard. I fell in love with the University the first day I looked at their website and even went visiting it but the location, Spain was another good point for me. Being part of this University, is like having a family far away from home. The administration, the Professors and the students here at Marbella Design Academy are very friendly, they make you feel loved, and know exactly who you are and what type of personality you’ve got. Marbella Design Academy is more than just a university, it is your second home, you don’t even want to leave the place until late in the afternoon. They just make you gain so much experience. I live in Monda near the Academy. People are friendly, almost all the students live there. There are places in Monda, you just have to explore. There are perfect walks to let loose and get inspire, for any course. I love it.
