The course allows a creative immersion into design practice and transfers the essential tools to handle complex projects. It is taught following a practical approach that starts from cycles of exercises and workshops succeeded by more complex identity projects and editorial designs. The One Year Course in Visual Design can also be intended as a primer to the Master courses in Visual or in Web Design.
An intense year-long training in graphic design specifically created for candidates with a degree that is not relevant to the field of interest and wishing to acquire a professional set of skills. The programme guides students to consolidate their personal creative technique thereby encouraging a conscious approach to the design stage, a designer’s most vital possession. Teaching focuses on practical experiences of increasing complexity alongside specialized classes in methodology and operational techniques. As a result of SPD’s peculiar historical heritage, specific attention is paid to relationship between the processes of human perception and the cultural and artistic roots of visual representation.
