Welcome to the website of the Media University Design Department!

Visual communication persuades, motivates, seduces, informs and makes things usable - on paper, on the screen, in space and in the environment. This is why students at the Media University's Department of Design deal with the most diverse dimensions of contemporary communication. Colour and form theory, graphic design, photography, illustration, typography, film and motion design, 3D and game design, web and app design form the creative basis for creating target group-oriented content for professional fields such as advertising, corporate design, layout, information design, game art or user experience/UX.
