From identity to editorial design, from information graphics to digital communication: the designer is called on to take care of all the graphic and visual aspects in the communication process. The programme of the Master’s course caters for the complexity of this scenario and allows profound experiences in the various areas of graphic design. The programme develops in an ongoing relation among these disciplines in order to promote a higher level of professionalism and enhance the technical proficiency of the designers. The studio classes draw up the students’ design thinking and their graphic abilities by reproducing the challenging dynamics which are peculiar to the professional practice. Format, layout and composition, typography and visual elements are closely investigated as key elements of the language of the graphic representation. The plan of studies includes advanced training into all the professional tools and up-to-date technologies.
The Master lasts 15 months (from October to December of the following year, with a summer break in August). Attendance is compulsory and full time. The total workload of the course corresponds to 1500 hours/student encompassing lessons, class exercises, internship and individual study.
At the end of lessons, students start a three-month internship at companies or professional firms in the field.
The Master’s course is held in English.
After passing the final exam, eligible students will obtain a Master’s Degree from IULM and SPD. The Master corresponds to 60 ECTS credits.
