Graphic Design Field Experience focuses on problem-solving methodologies employed in visual communication design, in the context of the cultures of Berlin and Prague. In the design-abroad course, students will apply narrative and storytelling methods, design research, analysis, documentation and implementation in their studio projects. Students will grasp European design perspectives and aesthetics while building a more attractive portfolio and resume that demonstrates international design experience.


Students in Graphic Design 2 are charged with a Visual Narrative and Mapping Assignment to document an event or experience through visual narrative using photography and typography.
