The discipline of graphic design is constantly changing and evolving, with a great potential to influence all kinds of media: digital, print and even the environment. We need versatile graphic designers who can take a critical view of society. They should be aware of their social responsibility as contemporary professionals. They should be ready to tackle the challenges posed by the ever-evolving new media. And they should be capable of developing disruptive concepts of visual communication.
Elisava’s Master’s in Visual Design is a one-year advanced programme focused on the contemporary practice of graphic design. It’s a programme intended to help you find your own individual characteristics as a professional and to give you a chance to explore new visual languages.
We’ll develop projects in the traditional areas of graphic design – visual, editorial, digital identity, packaging, environmental and audio-visual – as well as other disciplines that are fundamental today: strategy, research, verbal identity, process design and facilitation, management, experimentation, and more. We’ll also look at typography from different perspectives: from the most traditional to what new technologies have to offer.
The student profile for this Master’s degree is that of an inquisitive person, who asks questions, who interrogates the role of graphic design and who is passionate about the idea of providing innovative solutions to transform society in a positive way.
Access and Admission Requirements: Preferably, students with a degree in Graphic Design and professional profiles with accredited experience. Students should be efficient and proficient in the management of graphic design software.
