Master's degree in visual design


Programme Description

Ten extraordinary months. Ten great classroom lessons a month, with their key figures. Ten unique opportunities to learn directly from the protagonists. Master of Raffles Milan. Finally somebody thought of us.


If the world is a geography of communicating vessels, what tools do we need to be sure that messages are not lost on the road? Visual design is the discipline of designing large streams of information and content. Every sign follows a reaction. At each step, it follows an exchange. The important thing is that they are constructive, correct and interesting.

Professional Opportunities

Visual designers find employment in those areas where businesses relate to a public, such as news agencies, product companies, startups. And of course in the design and communications industry, freelance, or in the galaxy of local and international graphic and branding, advertising, digital and service design agencies and agencies. From the interface of a cash machine to TV subscriptions, from biscuit packs to excessive speed fines, from the newspapers we read to the events we participate in, to the stockings we wear, the world is a great project opportunity mine.

Who is

The course is aimed at designers who have first degree degrees and / or professional experience in graphics, image, communication, product and editorial topics, and in general to all those who think That communication is a good professional choice and a strong individual growth tool. This is a Master for those who think the details make the difference and are convinced that communication and experience are defined emotionally, creatively and artistically as strategically as possible.


Doing and Thinking together: Students develop - designing - the composition, design and printing skills of typography and photography, and the basics of data visualization and prototyping as technical / artistic bases to shape ideas. At the same time, students experience different approaches to research, understanding the design theme and its constraints, and generating effective ideas. The projects touch on different areas of cultural, commercial and editorial image and communication with artifacts for the physical and digital world.
