Graphic Design

Signs around you.

The Graphic Designer plays a central role in all projects that involve visual communication. From publishing to packaging, corporate identity to exhibits, signage to advertising, Graphic Design is a multidisciplinary profession that combines various elements of communication (signs, fonts, colours and images) to define languages that must always be original and contemporary. The RUFA Graphic Design graduate approaches this world of work armed with a command of many skills, thanks to the pathway followed at the Academy, which covers the many different aspects of visual communication. The graduate is trained in art history and publishing, and has the ability to work with traditional graphics techniques as well as multimedia. Thanks to having thus acquired thorough knowledge of graphic and photographic language, and of the technologies and media of today and the future, RUFA graduates possess the ability to implement projects for institutional identity, brand image, web design, wayfinding, and advertising. The RUFA graduate’s profile as a visual designer thus suits them for many scenarios of career development: from independent professional practice to working within advertising agencies, public institutions, and companies.
Academy Degrees are equivalent to Bachelor’s university degrees.
