A Graphic Designer develops visual communication projects. This professional feels comfortable inside a broad and multi-sided territory, ranging from traditional graphics to the new frontiers of digital media, merging traditional professions and original forms of expression. The Graphic Designer is capable of reading the beauty around, is interested in art and is up-to-date with the last trends: all characteristics that allow to be able to follow commercial logics and social dynamics. This creative figure knows how to use visual and communication techniques in each kind of work: from packaging design, up to film graphics, a logo for a new product or the creation of a trendy brand.
As Thesis Project, Antonija Bubalo and Sofia Fonda, IED Milano students, focused on news satire, which is a parody presented in the typical formats of traditional journalism. So, they created a book showing how it communicates with the public using printed materials, TV, and the web, reaching people in several countries of the world. They choose to develop such a project in order to become a more active audience themselves and to help people developing a critical mind. See the whole project.
Look what two students from IED Milano, Alessandro Comotti and Federico Fascilla, designed for the Graphic Design 3 exam in their 3rd year. Just before their Final Thesis, they created GEARS, a quarterly publication aimed at analyzing the global innovation scene through the technology that surrounds us every day.
The project included a website and smartphone application and the addition of interactive contents to support the articles. They mostly dealt with publishing design, digital publishing and interaction design.

Wander – Digital Community APP
If you don’t book an hotel, in a new city you have no place to leave your luggage, except for the luggage rooms in airport or train stations that sometimes are really expensive. Wander connects you to people living in the city, bars, b&b, and whoever would like to earn few moneys keeping your luggage for some time in an empty place of their property. The graphic interface of this app has been designed by Sofia Fonda, Graphic Design student at IED Milano.
