Visual Design is about telling a story, beautifully.

Every brand, company, and movement, has as story, a personality, a purpose. Visual designers bring that to life through graphics, logos, posters, photography, web designs, and virtually anything else that the human eye can see. Visual designers are responsible for how a product—and all the messaging and advertising around that product—looks. They’re involved in everything from choosing colors and fonts to building icons, graphics, and layouts.

What you'll learn in the Visual Design program.
Diana Matei, iX Visual Design 2018
Student at the University of Miami
"I loved how the Visual Design course challenged me in ways I haven't experienced before. Our teacher did a good job of pushing me in a creative way towards doing and achieving more than I thought I could. My biggest take away from class was how real life it felt. The time constraints and situations we were put in were incredibly realistic, which is an environment I’ve never been in before."

Duncan Stevens
Multidisciplinary Strategic Designer

How visual language has developed across the globe connecting almost every person on the planet so that some symbols, iconography or imagery evoke similar responses in the viewer excites me. It is this mass effect that gives it the power to shape and change the culture around it which will be especially important in the coming decades. We are at a pivotal point in our history as a species where if these mediums are not used for good, they could contribute to irreparable consequences for future generations.

Morgan Zagerman
Stanford University Class of 2021

iX pushed me to make work that I had no idea I could make. We were taught by such amazing designers like Beata, Lark, and Paul, and they held us to such a high standard and made us want to do really good work.

Kate Clawson
Tufts University Class of 2021

Digital Design taught me an immense amount about design on a practical level, while giving me an idea as to what pursuing a career in design may be like. I learned how important design is in our everyday lives and the amount of consideration involved in the development of everything around us.

Camelia Betancourt
Iowa State Class of 2020

All of the things that we learned in Design are completely relevant to so many fields today! It was definitely fast-paced and out of my comfort zone slightly, but felt so current. We learned about brand communication and development, as well as the software that comes with it!
