The course is distinguished by an emphasis on experimentation, versatility and technical expertise. Students are supported by access to industry-standard software, workshops and studio environments. Typical graduate portfolios might include branding, publicity, info-graphics, animations, publishing or web and app design in a range of technology and media. Students have the opportunity to work on a mix of in-house assignments, self-initiated tasks, Singaporean, Asian, and international competition opportunities and live project briefs.

Course Introduction

Why Master of Arts in Graphic Design?

This course explores the ever-changing landscape of graphic design, rethinking visual language by emphasising style, effective communication and future contexts.

It aims to engage you in diverse forms of traditional and contemporary media to build critical understanding, enhancing your individual design thinking and practical experience within the context of an international perspective, a range of contemporary issues and exciting new trends – from generative and gaming design, modular layouts and modern ‘retro’ to the positives of negative space and the brightest pastels.

A strong, ideas-based course, it is focused on practical outcomes, which combine visual and written language, achieved through intensive and challenging creative briefs, underpinned by sound academic research, self-critical reflection and contextually relevant practice. Students participate in projects that range across many topical and current themes in design, including globalisation, ethics, sustainability and the environment. Students also engage in graphic design practices, such as typography, photography, copywriting, art direction, animation and interactive design.

The course is suitable for those who have already undertaken a sustained period of creative practice in education or industry, and who wish to enhance their career as designers or art directors. We benefit from an international cohort of students, particularly recruiting from China, India, Africa, Cyprus and Europe, which provides an international perspective from the associated peer learning opportunities.

The course focuses on challenges and creative culture, as well as a deeper understanding of design processes, evaluation and expectations.

This course will involve a mix of creative design, management and leadership processes to equip you with the skills and expertise to lead effective creative design of commercial value within industrial, retail or service sectors.

Axell Garcia Shandy

Studying at Raffles was a great decision. The small class size allows for a more interactive environment. With critical thinking friends, experienced lecturers, and an open-minded style, discussions are meaningful and useful for my future endeavour. The array of modules offered covers both the general and specialised side of Graphic Design; thus, I can take the next step into the industry with confidence.
