GRAPHIC DESIGN PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Graphic Design Diploma Program trains students to become effective visual communicators. The graphic design classes teach the essential creative, intellectual and technical skills needed to formulate innovative designs and make a powerful impact on the viewer. The goal is to help students develop a keen understanding of our visual culture and an ability to contribute fresh, relevant ideas to the current design dialogue.

The Graphic Design curriculum encourages a global perspective and a flexible approach to creative problem solving within the realm of print, package and web-based design. Everything from posters to book covers to mobile application design is covered in this multifaceted program.

The faculty is comprised of working professionals who bring current knowledge of industry standards directly to students within an intimate classroom environment. Personal, one-on-one attention helps M.A.D.E students achieve a greater depth of knowledge and reach higher standards of excellence in their personal work.

Upon graduation, students will have a professional portfolio of design samples showcasing their unique style of communication through text and imagery. To student’s job search, M.A.D.E connects students to professional design agencies and organizations throughout the Graphic Design program via workshops, lectures, and portfolio reviews.

This program is taught entirely in English

CAREERS & OUTCOMES

The graphic designer can work in an advertising agency, graphic design studio, or in-house within the media and communication department of a company. The designer will be responsible for all steps from creating the visual communication product to its concept and final production.

Graphic designers with an entrepreneurial spirit may decide to work independently as a contractor, working temporarily on several projects. They may also decide to work within an agency, in which they may need to collaborate with one or several creative directors and designers.

Depending on the student’s profile and ambitions, the graphic designer can specialize in a particular field (typography, visual image and identity, packaging), or a special line of work or a technology. Some graphic designers specialize in print or digital communication (advertising, catalogues or web marketing, banners, newsletters, animations, web interface).
