Graphic Designer

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.

Damm-a trà

Immigration topic is current and of great media interest. There are many gaps and misinformation about this issue. “Damm-a trà” is a Thesis Project from IED Milano that speaks about the migratory phenomenon of the city of Milan starting from its historical origins, in order to better understand its meaning.
Through the research project it is wanted to provide citizens with cognitive tools to the height to understand this enormous phenomenon with greater ease, providing the reader with visual communication tools and easy consultations such as charts, tables and indicators.

The myth of immigration as a recent invasion is dispelled through the use of concrete data provided by Milan municipality, having as a basis the work of two journalists authors of the book Milano multietnica.
Interesting the symbol of the project: a stamp-mark recalling the stamp of State put in documents for residence permit and citizenship procedures, with the dates 1979-2017.


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.


As final exam of the  Digital Video course, that is held during the 3rd year of Graphic Design at IED Milano, students faced for the first time a whole motion graphics project producing an explanatory video of the film The Big Lebowski. From drafting the storyboard to the editing of the copy, students took care of every step of the video production, achieving a professional output. A special mention must be given to the focus on character design and the single animations of the scenes composing the final video.

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.

Davide Bitton, IED student in Graphic Design, developed Bee+ social non-profit app, cycling kindness as an inner economy alternative to money: skills, knowledge, abilities and opinion in a circular way instead of a direct one, based on daily necessities of any form of assistance. And a new brand image for the association GentleTude.

In occasion of the 60th anniversary of its launch, the magazine Quattroruote asked IED Torino Graphic Design Students to realise the new logo. The briefing required the presentation of a project declined in different colours and formats, adaptable to digital devices, merchandising, and institutional instruments. The winning project has been realised by Jacopo Boggione, Alessandro Calabrese, and Flavia Giolito. The vintage mood of the image has been particularly appreciated, because it recalls the concept of a historical magazine that since 60 years provides constant updates on the last trends in the automotive field.
