Course aim

Methodology and structure - This course is meant to provide students with a hands-on introduction to graphic design principles and tools. Through theoretical lessons, the program covers high-level concepts like layout, typography, and color. Then students have the chance to get hands-on, using Illustrator to build a custom logo and practice the vector drawing techniques. Next, the program takes students into Photoshop, where they learn how to creatively adjust and retouch the images they’ll use in design projects.

During the final project presentation, partecipants show the results of the work carried out through the course.

Summer course includes a strategic combination of theoretical lessons, case studies and workshops with industry professionals, as well as site visits to design studios and exhibitions. Site visits are an integral part of the program’s learning experience and are designed to complement what is acquired in the classroom as well as serve as an on-going orientation to the field.
