Graphic Design


In this field you will learn the design in both theory and practice - from print media, online graphic design (web design) and visual identities, to posters, logos, logotypes and 3D graphics.

Leading Czech designers impart practical knowledge and proven expertise to students within the framework of professional courses.

Graphic design surround us - through visual messages such as mobile apps, magazine articles, logos, websites and even the complete visual identity of a company or city. We prepare our students to be able to implement their ideas and contribute to visual communication through graphic design. Graduates acquire skills in the areas of text typesetting, typography, image composition, vector graphics and working with illustration or photography.
