About this program

Visual Design

Learning by doing is the principle at the root of the Three-year courses at Raffles Milano, a training experience that structures the mind, provides a solid technical foundation and unleashes a desire to broaden your life horizons

To design is to transform the world, from the simplest things right up to the most complex ones. Design is not just a discipline that teaches us how to invent and improve the material side of life: it is also an ideal model that teaches us how things both great and small are bound together by invisible threads. It is the art of change, responsibility and commitment.

Applicants will be expected to show a strong interest in design disciplines (visual, graphic, exhibition and digital design, lettering, photography and video), in social sciences (anthropology, theories of communication and mass media, sociology and semiology) and in the culture of the visual arts (art and design history).
