Program Description

Master in Graphic Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Florence


The Master in Graphic Design aims to fill the gap that is often created between available study paths and the ever-more demanding professional world, particularly in terms of acquired experiences and skills.


The master is tailored for graduates or professionals in the areas of Graphics, Architecture, Design, Fine Arts and Advertising. Participants with an adequate (two years) experience in the fields of management, communication, marketing, public relations or visual communications (graphic, product, interior, advertising, photography, web or social) are also welcome.

Method and Structure

The Master has a complete and articulate program thanks to a balanced didactic structure, organized in three main areas: Cultural, Tools and Techniques and Project.

The Cultural area's main objectives include the acquisition of notions and an effective method of communication of several types of projects. This area includes lectures, classes, workshops and individual studies.

The second area of Tools and Techniques aims at the application of graphic design in diverse contexts with particular attention to developing areas (video, social communication, mobile UI/UX, interface design and digital publishing).

The Project area is mainly practical and strategic and aims at the complete management of a communication project in all of its phases in collaboration with companies or other external partners.

Lessons and classes are all structured as working briefs and workshops. Participants will work on the basis of real briefs which are inserted from the start in a context that reconstructs the dynamics of working companies and studio in multiple contexts such as communication studios, companies or visual departments within institutions. Professors are selected from experts and professionals in the respective fields of teaching.
