Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool
A graphic designer is creative, likes to draw, has a vivid imagination, can analyse, organise, inform en communicate, has an interest in language, literature, society and culture.
The programme graphic design is an interaction between different artistic and practical courses, including design, drawing, illustration, typography, photography, multi-media and digital techniques. 

An important competency is reflection in terms of conceptual and functional design.
A lot of attention is spent on innovative ideas, experimental research and critical self-reflection in the development of a specific personal vision and visual language.
Supporting and complementing the practical processes of design, theoretical courses form an integral part of the education. 

Moreover, design processes are often effectuated by means of new techniques and forms of communication, such as digital media and apps.
During the first year you will deepen your knowledge of graphic design, illustrative design, as well as multimedial design.
During the second year you will choose one of these disciplines.
You will also take an internship of 6 to 9 weeks at a design- or advertising company, an illustrator, publisher or multimedia company in order to get some experience.
Our graduates are, among others, active as independent designer, illustrator, multimedia-designer, art-director or they are employed at design companies, publishers and other companies...
In this digital era of ‘mobile working’, it is strongly recommended to possess a personal laptop.

Reading Type & Typography

Within the English Master Visual Arts, the Graphic Design department at PXL-MAD offers an English Master Studio ‘Reading Type & Typography’ (one year - 60 ECTS). The course revolves around experimentation and research, in which thoughts and actions are in constant interplay with each other. The increase of interest in type design and/or typography – which happens in contrast with other areas of design and/or scientific fields –  is seen as an inspiring starting point that is constantly questioned in order to develop a critical attitude towards design for reading (both on traditional media and in contemporary digital times).
The master programme consists of two major components: Studio Practice and the Master Seminar Series ‘READSEARCH: Reading Type & Typography’.
Based on these two components and supported by a team of renowned designers, artists and academics from our own faculty as well as international guest-speakers and guest tutors, students are continually encouraged and challenged to reflect on their work by shifting between being ‘in’ and being ‘out’ of their own work.
Thanks to the extensive network of our department and of members of staff (dr. Ann Bessemans, dr. Geoffrey Brusatto, dr. Tom Lambeens, PhD Student Maarten Renckens, Luc Rerren, Monique Rutten, Johan Vandebosch, Katleen Verjans), students are given several possibilities to come in contact with and/or getting to know international organisations, institutes, curators, artists, designers, graphic designers, typographers and type designers interested in typography (graphic design) and font design. This allows them to create a network that can be a very good starting point for projects and collaborations after their English Master.
