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.

Contemporary society moves its first steps towards "artificial intelligence". This expression may sound bombastic, but the essence of the phenomenon can be synthesized in a few words: many tiring activities that today weigh mainly on human intelligence are steadily being transferred to computers, which are finally able to read the semantic meaning of raw information, creating a vast network of benefits and profits.

Modern digital environments and the "artificial" intelligence that are developed in and from them are deeply changing jobs in every sector, at every level. Many new professions are being developed in this setting, and it's not a case that most of the EU funding being placed in 2014 and onwards is going towards a "digital agenda".... [-]

Ten amazing months. Ten top-level agencies in the lecture theatre, one every month. Ten unique chances for learning by doing, elbow-to-elbow with the best. The Raffles Milano Masters: someone has come up with them at last. Why?

If the world’s geography is made up of intercommunicating vessels, which tools do we need to be sure that our messages do not fall by the wayside?
