Signs around you.



You will play a central role in all of the visual communication projects, from publishing to unconventional marketing, from corporate identity to advertising, from signposting to promotions.


The Graphic Designer plays a central role in all projects that involve visual communication. From publishing to packaging, corporate identity to exhibits, signage to advertising, Graphic Design is a multidisciplinary profession that combines various elements of communication (signs, fonts, colours and images) to define forms of expression that must always be original and contemporary. RUFA Graphic Design graduates approach this job market armed with many skills, thanks to the program attended at the Academy which covers the many different aspects of visual communication. Graduates are trained in art history and publishing, and have the ability to work with traditional graphics techniques as well as multimedia. Thanks to having acquired thorough knowledge of graphics and photography, and of the technologies and media of today and the future, RUFA graduates possess the ability to implement projects for institutional identity, brand image, web design, wayfinding, and advertising. The profile of RUFA graduates is that of a visual designer that can work in many scenarios: from independent professional practice to working within advertising agencies, public institutions, and companies.

The Academic Bachelor of Arts is equivalent to a University Bachelor’s Degree.
