Start on a path of excellence in Graphic Design for culture and entertainment with IED Roma's Master's Program in Graphic Design.

This Master's Program offers an experience dedicated to the different dimensions of graphic design, supervised by professionals of the highest level in constant dialogue with the extraordinary city of Rome, a place where the signs of every era have been stratified over time.   

You will explore visual communication from the typeface to the city. From designing the building blocks of the graphics - the characters of a font - to the development of a community communication project for city spaces, including communication campaigns for the creative industry, artists' books and publishing projects.    

During a true immersion in the world of graphics, you will acquire advanced technical skills and discover the power of graphics to mould ideas and emotions. Through intensive workshops, you will learn how to handle graphic languages with an in-depth view encompassing creativity, art direction and communication dynamics and to develop complex projects and integrated campaigns in various media.

The Master's Program to create the future of visual communication 

In the Master's Program in Graphic Design in Rome we explore graphic design in a practical way. The structure of the course is modelled on the organisation of a design studio. This will enable you to acquire a wide range of skills and to develop projects of increasing complexity.  

The design workshops are the beating heart of the educational programme. They will give you the opportunity to immediately apply the notions imparted during the theoretical lessons and to acquire all the necessary skills to create visual content, coordinate Brand Identity processes and manage complex projects and integrated campaigns. 

You will tackle fascinating topics, from the analysis of logos and typefaces to the visual communication of cultural projects. The culmination of the educational programme will be the final thesis: you will develop a project to improve the use of services or common spaces in the city.
