Oficial School


For the third consecutive year, IED Madrid is the official educational institution of the Madrid Design Festival. It is a true honor to be the school selected since the first edition of the festival, being able to participate so actively and present in one of the most important events in the design sector nationwide.

As an international network of design training, we are responsible for a change that is increasingly necessary in companies and institutions, which recognize in the creative and designers the profiles capable of anticipating the future, understanding new contexts and proposing solutions that Respect the environment, social and cultural diversity.

In the IED Madrid we raise the training to a new level through IED REC (Research Education Center). A research center, in continuous contact with the industry, that offers a space of thought, experimentation and action, creating an innovative academic model capable of adapting to a new social and business reality.

Three locations in the most recognized neighborhoods for innovation, creativity and architecture make IED Madrid the largest specialized design campus in the capital. Spaces that during the festival will become a meeting point for all the live agents in the sector, from our students and students to companies and institutions related to design, innovation and creativity.

It is an uncertain moment for design, but in its complexity, it is inspiring and crucial in creating a better world. In this third edition of the festival, the IED Madrid presents a program in which the students of the school become agents of change and producers of plausible futures critically exploring trends and new scenarios through design.
