Overview

 

In the Graphic Design department, students are taught how to make the
messages of the surrounding world visible. This could also be seen as learning how to communicate visually. Many resources are used in this process: type, signs, colours, pictures, moving pictures, composition, form, etc.

Various tools are used to achieve the result: one’s hands and eyes, pencil
and paper, computers and scanners, cameras and DVD writers, etc. Many subjects
are studied: drawing, photography, the history of design, typography,
info graphics, corporate identity, poster and web design, book design, pre-press
technology, video, etc. All this should guide the student’s creative and organized
thought processes.

Here we learn to think!
