Three-year Higher Education Course In Graphic Design And Web Design - Fondazione Accademia Di Comunicazione



Three-year Higher Education Course in Graphic Design and Web Design

A path dedicated to young people in possession of a high school diploma who wish to immediately acquire solid tools and skills in order to work in the graphics design environment.

The Accademia di Comunicazione three-year Course in Graphic Design, one of the first in Italy in the field of Visual Communication, can today boast a long tradition and a showcase of prestigious awards, both national and international, awarded to students for projects carried out. Moreover, merit must also be given to the Course for forming several generations of Graphic Designers who were immediately appreciated for the quality of their preparation and for their experience.

The Higher Education Course in Graphic Design and Web Design is a three-year educational path starting each October with compulsory full-time attendance (Monday to Friday)

Competences and skills required to start a career in the Graphic Design and Web Design fields must be acquired through hands-on experience not only books in order to cope with the extremely rapid changes requiring continual updating.

Accademia di Comunicazione, thanks to programs constantly updated according to job market demand and a teaching staff made up of distinguished professionals, offers its students an educational environment where they acquire skills and a problem-solving mindset through a project-oriented methodology.

Live projects by real companies developed in small teams, paired up with creatives, under the guidance of professionals are the core activities throughout the Course, as well as acquiring a final presentation portfolio to enter the world of employment with. 

The Accademia di Comunicazione educational approach is based on the ‘learning by doing’ methodology. That’s why at Accademia the teaching staff is made up exclusively of outstanding professionals in the various fields of Communication: Creative Directors, Graphic Designers, Web Designers, Illustrators and Visual Communication Experts from the most important Italian and international organizations.

Professionals transfer available expertise and knowledge while guiding and supervising students in the realization of graphic and web design projects.

During the Course, students participate (and win) in the most important national and international awards with guidance from Italian and British Creative Directors:

The One Show College Competition: the New York Art Directors Club Award – The D&AD Student Awards : the British Art Directors Club Award– Spot School Award: The International Mediterranean Award.

The 3-year FT Course in Graphic Design and Web Design aims at providing participants with a broad body of knowledge and sound professional competences which enable them to manage the integrated graphic and web communications for brands, products and services. Students develop customer-centric multichannel strategies to meet the new parameters imposed by digital and social media marketing and communication.

The Course’s program is a concrete answer to the demand of the marketing and the communication industry in which skills in the digital field are fundamental. The whole path structure provides the participants with knowledge and specific technical skills and allows immediate entry into the job.

The aim of the course is to form the figure of the Graphic Designer, a very complex yet broad profession at the same time. Application environments are always those of visual language, even if the ways messages are communicated have evolved and changed considerably due to digital media. The Graphic Project expert today is therefore not only an expert in visual language, but also a director of communication strategy based on institutional and digital environments.

Disciplines encountered during the three-year period aim at investigating and mastering all applicatory environments of Visual Communication, from the more traditional and steeped in history to those currently more interesting due to their contents and market outlook.

At the end of the Course, internships (which have insurance covering from the Accademia di Comunicazione) at Companies, Agencies, Associations and Professional Studios are scheduled for each and every student. Internships subsequently turn into proper jobs and the start of their professional career.
