Overview

Graphic designers can analyze communication problems and needs, and to visualize messages, ideas, and feeling in concise, effective, and visually satisfying ways.
The purpose of graphic design may be to inform, identify, clarify, or persuade the public or a specific audience.
The finished design usually combines a drawn or photographic image with letterforms and typography. Most often, the result is reproduced through the printing process, but it may take other forms such as an exhibition, a slide presentation or a package.
Specific job opportunities include the design of advertisements, exhibitions, publications, corporate symbols, packaging, books, signs, magazines, posters, typography, illustrations, photographic images, plus art direction and design consultation.
The goal, in the development of the curriculum, has been to establish a one-year program concentrating on the design process rather than products.
The faculty maintains close contact with students and careful supervision of the curriculum. Students develop understandings and abilities as relating to image-making tools and modes. Such understandings are employed for perceptible questioning, clarification, edification, and problem-solving. Intuition and objectivity are fostered through design projects, in-depth analysis, and critical evaluation of the issues and processes and their manifestations.
A graduate of this program has a diversified but through knowledge of visual aesthetics, concept communication, and design methodology.
A series of required courses has been formulated to fulfill a designer’s practical, academic, and analytical needs.

Master Course

Overview

Accademia Riaci's Master of Graphic Design places primary importance on the ability of students to be critical agents; to seek problems and to pose questions. Faculty evaluates graduate students on their ability to define individual investigations and to support their decision-making with an independent program of reading and research, and ability to critically evaluate and articulate discoveries, and an ability to synthesize ideas through the creation of design projects. The main thrust of our graduate program is to provide a research dimension to the field by contributing to the understanding of graphic design through investigations into its history, theory, criticism, and methodology as well as its practice. Graduate students come from a variety of academic and professional practice experiences. The department accepts students who have an undergraduate degree in graphic design or comparable professional practice experience as well as those with degrees in other disciplines who see a connection between their previous study and graphic design.
